More than half-a-million Filipinos living and working overseas started voting yesterday until May 10 at a little less than a hundred Philippine Embassies and Consulate Offices around the world. Only Hong Kong and Singapore will use the automated poll system.

Overseas Absentee Voting or OAV started at 8:00AM yesterday, April 10, at every embassy and consulate office and ends 6:00PM daily until May 10. There are a little less than 150,000 opting for postal voting while the rest are expected to personally appear for voting.
