Lilibeth D. Ustare, Election Officer II, said she is not anticipating any problem or trouble during the election.


However, Ustare said, she is not taking any chance, that is why they have brought with them an extra VCM should the lone machine assigned to the municipality suffer some technical difficulties on election day, taking note the location of the municipality.
It is her first time on Pag-asa Island as she used to be the election officer of Cagayancillo town, which is the nearest settlement to the famous diving spot - Tubbataha National Marine Park.

The VCM  has been inspected and tested by the election board. After the successful test the VCM was sealed, to be opened for Monday’s elections. And just like any other precinct in the Philippines, voting in the municipality of Kalayaan will start at 6 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m.
On Monday, residents of Pag Asa will elect the provincial governor, vice governor, provincial board members, and district representative; the town mayor, vice mayor, and members of the municipal council of Kalayaan; and national candidates for senators and party-list groups.
