The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has rescheduled the start of the printing of ballots for the 2022 elections to Jan. 20.

“The printing committee, taking into consideration various technical factors, has moved the start of printing to a date yet to be announced,” Comelec spokesman James Jimenez said.

“Tentative start of ballot printing is tomorrow, Jan. 20, 2022,” he added.

The printing of ballots was supposed to start today, Jan. 19.

A total of 67,442,714 ballots will be printed for the 2022 elections.

Jimenez said that the delay would not affect the start of the 2022 elections.

The Comelec has finalized the list of candidates in the 2022 elections, which includes 10 candidates for president, nine candidates for vice president and 64 candidates for senator. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
