The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) said it has already received over 60,000 or 61.77% out of 107,785 election returns for the parallel count on the May 9 national and local elections. 

As of 10:30 a.m., a total of 66,574 out of 107,785 election returns were received by the PPCRV at their command center at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila

North and South Luzon ERs account for 40,292, followed by the Visayas with 11,614, the National Capital Region with 10,033, and Mindanao with 4,635.

The independent election watchdog is still waiting to receive the election returns from overseas voting.

The PPCRV has also recorded a 1.61% mismatch among 240 election returns and the transparency media server for the 2022 elections.

Commission on Elections spokesperson John Rex Laudiangco said that the mismatch was “nothing to worry about” since it won’t affect the election results, including the national positions.
