The CEC said that 19,311,105 will be able to cast their ballots for president, with 1,000 more able to do so for legislators-at-large, due to a two-month difference in the residency requirement for the two elections.

In terms of age groups, 40-49 year-olds make up the largest voting bloc with 3.74 million eligible voters, or 19 percent of the electorate, followed by 50-59 year-olds with 3.63 million eligible voters, the CEC said.

Around 1.18 million 20-23 year-olds, who account for 6 percent of the electorate, are eligible to vote in presidential and legislative elections for the first time, the CEC noted.

In Saturday’s election, voters will receive three ballots — a presidential ballot, a regional or aboriginal legislator ballot and a ballot for a political party that will determine legislator-at-large seats.

After the polling stations close at 4 p.m. Saturday, votes for the president will be tallied first, followed by regional/aboriginal legislator votes, with political party ballots counted last, a CEC official told CNA Wednesday.
