    I did hear about an amount of 2000 peso handed out in person for the barangay election. Not on Negros but somewhere on Mindanao.

    these times are the best for the mother in law, she will have 50s and 20s coming out of her ears for the next few weeks, think sometimes they actually get the money not to vote as opposed to voting

    In Siquijor, 2K for the whole ticket. I haven't heard of vote buying in Duma.

    Vote buying is illegal but politicians simply giving money to the poor could be considered a legal, humanitarian gesture. So as long as you don't give sample ballots with the donation, it will be almost impossible to prove vote buying. In 2022 out millions of votes cast, there were about 265 cases of illegal vote buying. Many people in the towns and barangays expect the money every election cycle and they know what is expected. In the USA we have the same thing at a different level. Who doesn't think that Biden's student loan forgiveness WAS NOT vote buying, open and obvious funded by taxpayer money.
