The Senate is the upper house of Congress; the House of Representatives is the lower house. Congress holds legislative power, except to the extent reserved to the people by the provision on initiative and referendum. The Senate is the sole that ratifies treaties and convenes the impeach court.

2022 automated election system (AES)

The May 2022 election is the country's fifth automated polls, which started in the 2010 elections.

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.
