Unsourced figures[edit]

None of the election figures given in this and related articles are sourced, and they do not appear to correspond to the figures given by COMELEC. Unless they are sourced, they will have to be deleted, as I have already deleted the figures at the Senate election page. Intelligent Mr Toad (talk) 09:48, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

First things first, blanking is bad. Slap a tag or something, but don't blank unless no one comes up with something for a reasonable amount of time. That should've merited a {{uw-delete1}} but since you're a supposedly longtime registered user you should know that by now... –HTD 17:43, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
The Senate figures, both votes and seats won, have now been updated and are now sourced. The COMELEC didn't release the turnout though so I left that out. The party figures were arrived at by adding the vote totals of candidates from the same parties, so that's well within the boundaries of not citing 1+1 since they're pretty much straightforward.
The COMELEC hasn't released House figures, and they never do, but they have per district vote totals (albeit incomplete) from the so-called "Transparency server". These are supposedly "unofficial and partial" so I haven't updated the district election articles, but that hasn't stopped other people from doing so. All district seats have declared winners already, so that can be easily sourced. –HTD 17:47, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
