Former Vice President Jejomar "Jojo" Binay went to his poll precinct early Monday morning in Makati City, as KAMI found out from the report.
However, the machine reportedly rejected his ballot 8 times.
According to Principal Jina Iligan of San Antonio National High School where Binay voted, it was due to a paper jam caused by the vote-counting machine.
She said to an interview with CNN Philippines:
"Nag-bog down, paper jam ang ating machine. Inaayos ngayon ng technician."
Nevertheless, the vote of former VP Binay will be counted once the machine gets fixed.
"(Ang balota niya) safe na naka-folder... Ifi-feed po ulit mamaya ang kaniyang balota kasi hindi siya marked, walang sira. Kapag maayos mamaya ang machine, ifi-feed ulit 'yon."
Former Vice President Jejomar "Jojo" Binay reportedly said that he will go to the Commission on Elections to complain about the incident.
Binay is also running as 1st District Rep. of Makati City.
