From Eleksyon 2007 -

Atty. Raissa Jajurie witnessed election irregularities in Sulu
"'I was really taken aback by the cheating in the area…I was shocked to see the BEIs writing on the ballots which had already been thumbmarked by voters,' ."
The innocent interpretation of this behavior is that the voters, being illiterates, asked a member of the BEI to help them fill up the ballots. There are of course other interpretations:
"Jajurie described the voters as "too scared" or that they "could have been paid.""
Because Atty. Jajurie was there and saw the scene for herself, I am inclined to accept her interpretation.
