Many elderly voters of Makati City went to polling precincts early Monday to avoid the long queues that typically build up from midday to late afternoon of election day.

Among these elderly folk was 100-year-old Marolina Mendoza, a registered voter of Makati for more than 40 years, who voted at a polling precinct in Barangay San Antonio.

“I did not encounter any problem in voting. My daughter was the one who checked my name on the voter’s list. There was a designated precinct for senior citizens at the ground floor,” Mendoza said.

She said she made a list of candidates a few days prior to the elections to reduce the time she would spend at the polling precinct.

Mendoza said she was satisfied with the performance of the Makati City government, especially in the delivery of health and social services to senior citizens like her.

“The city government’s yellow card is a great help in shouldering my medical expenses. My medicines are delivered right to my house,” she said.

Makati City has a total of 397,587 registered voters, according to data gathered by the Comelec during the 2016 national and local elections.
