Guide on how to vote in emergency accessible polling places

ON May 9, persons with disabilities (PWDs), senior citizens and heavily pregnant women may choose to vote in emergency accessible polling places (EAPPs) in case their precinct is located on the higher floors of voting centers.

EAPPs are makeshift tents located at the ground floor of multi-level voting centers, intended to make the voting process easier to the vulnerable, whether or not they have signified their intent to vote in an APP, according to Comelec Resolution 10108.

VERA Files made a step-by-step guide on how to vote in EAPPs.
