In the Chicago post, except for Clustered Precinct ID No. 91070077, which has 501 registered voters with 107 casting their votes, there were 21 cluster precincts with 1000 registered votes each precinct. Out of the 21 cluster precincts, there was one cluster precinct ballot box which was unopened where nobody voted. The unopened ballot is contained in Clustered Precinct No. 0057A, which was not opened by the Voting Counting Machine. It has 1,000 registered voters and no voters voted.

THIS REPORTER took video shots of each of the 21 clusters precincts tally sheets and using spreadsheets was able to figure out the results of the winning senators and party-list parties in the last May 13, 2019 mid-term elections. Among the causes of delay in the tabulation is the absence of built-in calculator in the Voting Counting Machine. (JGL Selfie Photo by JOSEPH G. LARIOSA)
