Note: We will continue to update the results as soon as we get new data. In the meantime, you might want to share your thoughts on the lighter side of Cordillera politics.
UPDATE 4: Floydelia Diasen was officially proclaimed as the Governor-elect of Kalinga after she received 52,897 votes against Lawrence Wacnang’s 18,721 votes. Although the votes from Tinglayan have yet to be added to the provincial total, the COMELEC decided to proclaim Diasen because the remaining uncanvassed votes would not affect the results. The congressional race remains a toss-up between Manuel Agyao and James Bejarin and the Tinglayan votes will decide who between the two of them will be Kalinga’s next Congressman. Source: Inquirer.

UPDATE 3: Now that the election canvassing is almost over, we’d like to thank you for visiting this blog. We hope you continue to visit us in the future. In the meantime, you might want to join us in our playful attempt to put words in the mouths of our politicians here. In case you are interested in more election-related news from the Cordilleras, we have some links for you here. Lastly, you might want to read our post in honor of our kailiyans who died working for a peaceful election here.
UPDATE 2: Seems like Floydelia Diasen is going to be the next Governor of Kalinga. The difference in her vote total with Congressman Lawrence Wacnang’s is just so big (around 23,000) and it would be statistically impossible for Wacnang to overtake his challenger. Meanwhile the votes from Lubuagan, the only town not yet included in the provincial total, will determine who between James Bejarin and Manuel Agyao is going to represent Kalinga in the House of Representatives. Nats Dalanao has the details here.
UPDATE 1: Floydelia Diasen is leading in the gubernatorial race but it’s still too early to call. It’s a close fight in the congressional race with no one clearly ahead of the pack. Kalinga Tambayan has the details in both gubernatorial and congressional races [partial and unofficial] as well as the results in the capital town of Tabuk [also partial and unofficial].
FIRST POST: The best place to look for the election results in Kalinga will be at Kalinga Tambayan. Nats has a running partial unofficial tally which I’m sure he will be updating regularly until the vote count ends. We will eventually place the results here once the canvass is completed.
