The video footage exposing an election ballot, which was allegedly pre-shaded with a magic pen goes viral after it was posted on social media.
A few days before the 2019 midterm elections, political candidates are now busy on their campaign and making different strategies to win.
Several candidates were manipulating the ballots to get a winning result and secure a position on the government.
In the video, it can be seen that the ballot has been already shaded with a magic pen that could only be seen using a flashlight.
However, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) explained that there is no truth to allegations that the official ballots for the 2019 elections have been pre-shaded.
Here's the original Video post:
“The ballots have QR codes, serial number, and precinct assignment. It was obviously a staged video because it doesn’t have those features. It was a waste because they already staged a video yet they used the wrong ballot prop,” Comelec Executive Director Jose Tolentino Jr. said.
The social media users have also expressed their reactions on the post:
