A total of 313 votes were cast online on the first day of the college Student Government elections in De La Salle Lipa, as of 4:36 pm of April 16.
The total vote turn out was 9.08% of the total student population of college students, which is 3,445.
“Siguro nakikiramdam pa sila sa mga candidates na iboboto ng karamihan,” Comelec Secretary Angelika Borlasa said.
“Parang nakiki-bandwagon if magpa-participate pa ba, ibiboto ba si candidate, ia-abstain, or hindi na lang talaga makikiboto,” she added.
The online elections will continue until Friday, April 20.
With only one candidate per position, each candidate needs 50% plus 1 votes from the total college population to win.
