The Commission on Elections said that the printing of 2022 Election ballots, slated on January 19th, did not push through.

“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 told reporters on Viber later the same day.

Jimenez added that the later printing will not have any negative impact on the Comelec’s preparation for the election . He also added that the ballot design will be released soon as the finalization process has been completed.

Nearly 67.54 million ballots will be printed over 3 months or until April 21, the printing committee said.
