On Monday, the candidates casted their votes on their respective polling precinct.

According to Comelec, more than 40 million voters are expected to report to 92,000 precincts across the country to cast their ballots in the country’s second automated presidential election.

Based on Comelec rules, the candidate with the highest number of votes wins the vice presidency. In case when two or more candidates have the highest number of votes, one of them shall be chosen by the vote of a majority of all the members of both Houses of the Congress, voting separately.

The canvassing of votes for the vice-presidential including the presidential race is the sole jurisdiction of Congress sitting as the National Board of Canvassers, according to the poll body.

The Congress is given not later than thirty days after the day of the election to canvass results from all provinces, independent cities that have their own legislative districts, diplomatic posts, and local absentee voters.

The winners shall be inaugurated on June 30, 2016.

2016 automated election system (AES)

The May 2016 election is the country's third automated polls after the 2010 (presidential) and 2013 (senatorial) polls.

When voting close on Monday, the vote counting machines (VCMs) transmit the vote counts – also known as election returns or ERs – to the different servers and canvassing centers in the AES.

From the VCMs, the election returns (ERs) are transmitted to the central server, to a transparency server, and to the municipal board of canvassers (MBOC).

From the MBOC, the results are transmitted to the provincial board of canvassers (PBOC), where the results are collated and then transmitted to the national board of canvassers (NBOC), where the results for national positions are canvassed.

The MBOC and PBOC also separately beam ERs to the central server.
