A report from GMA News quoted Comelec's information technology department saying "there were problems transmitting ERs to the transparency server, from which media organizations get their data."

As for the automated election system (AES), 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 ERs are transmitted to the central server, to a transparency server, and to the municipal board of canvassers (MBOC).

Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said they are already working to fix the issue and hopeful that a solution could be found before midnight.

Jimenez further clarified in an interview on ABS-CBN's news program Bandila that there's no issue on transmission. "The issue is on the application pushing the data from Transparency Server to the computer of the media."
