INFOGRAPHIC: What to expect at Comelec checkpoints
MANILA, Philippines – The election security checkpoints are back on the roads across the country, as the 2016 election period officially started on Sunday, January 10.
Expect to encounter these roadblocks in all cities and municipalities until the election period ends on June 8.
The checkpoints have been set up to implement the gun ban, which is also in effect during the entire poll period.
The infographic below will help you identify a legitimate election period checkpoint – as prescribed by Commission on Elections' Resolution Number 10029. It will guide you on what to do – or not to do – when you are stopped at one.
Help us monitor checkpoints and report whether they conform to the specifications of the Comelec. Let us know of any possible violations of motorists' rights at these checkponts.
Send us photos or video of checkpoints in your localities at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also share your photos and videos in our Twitter (use the hashtag #PHvote) and Facebook pages. – Rappler.com
