The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) needs over 300,000 volunteers to assist in monitoring the May 13 elections. 

The volunteers will be assigned to around 85,000 clustered precincts nationwide.

"We encourage the priests to recruit and send volunteers for our voter education seminar," PPCRV Executive Director Maribel Buena told ANC's "Beyond Politics" on Tuesday.

"From Batanes to Jolo, we do have volunteers," she added.

Like in previous elections, the parish-based watchdog will conduct voter's education efforts, poll watching, and an unofficial parallel count.
