Campaign posters have nearly taken over Aguinaldo Highway and other principal roads in the province as the 30-day countdown to the May 13 elections began Friday.
The Cavite Commission on Elections (Comelec) said candidates shall suffer sanctions if they were discovered breaking the rules on campaign posters, billboards, and other election materials.
Campaign posters have also burgeoned on walls, posts, and fences along the roads. The number of campaign posters is foreseen to rise further as the Election Day approaches.
The posters are most noticeable along the 40-kilometer Aguinaldo Highway. Campaign posters could also be viewed in such banned places as trees, electric and telephone lines and private and public buildings.
Cavite, with seven cities and 16 municipalities, is the country’s most dense province. It has over two million voters and hundreds of candidates vying for provincial, district, city and municipal elective positions.
