Tinatakot ang mga tao na tumanggap ng pera na kung iba o yung kalaban ang binoto nila, pwede daw silang balikan dahil mate-trace raw nila ang kanilang ibinoto sa pamamagitan ng kinuhang biometric. Pero ang ganitong ginagawa ay nai-report na sa Comelec at ang sabi ni Spokesman Dir. James Jimenez, matagal nang tapos ang pagkuha ng Biometrics sa mga botante, ang deadline ay noon pang 2015. Ito ay inilunsad ng kanilang ''NO BIO NO BOTO CAMPAIGN'' at sinabi pa ng Comelec na hindi pwedeng gamitin ang Biometrics para ma-trace kung sino ang binoto ng isang botante. Kaya nagbabala din ang Comelec na wala silang ino-authorise ng biometrics operations dahil tapos na ito, na kung sino mang gumawa nito ay pwedeng kasuhan dahil sa paglabag sa Omnibus Election Code.

After evading a question on his biggest campaign contributors during Sunday’s Pilipinas Debates 2016, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte revealed on Monday that most of them were from Davao City.
During the debate, moderator Karen Davila asked Duterte to name his campaign’s biggest donor. The Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) standard bearer replied, "Nasa bukid, Ma'am."
Pressed for a name, Duterte replied, '''Emilio Aguinaldo.
But on Monday the mayor said that there really was no “Emilio Aguinaldo”, and that most of his contributors were based in Davao City. “Wala masyado sa labas,” he added.
Asked to explain why he wouldn’t name his biggest donors, Duterte said he would name them after the election.
“Sino ba naman ang magbigay sa iyo kung ibulgar mo iyong pangalan niya? You can write it sa Comelec [Commission on Elections] pero after. Huwag ngayon,” Duterte explained.
In March, Duterte also evaded a question on his campaign donors and said that an anonymous Chinese donor paid for his pre-campaign ads.
Meanwhile, his supporters on Sunday night thought of creative ways to explain the role of “Emilio Aguinaldo” in Duterte’s campaign.
Some pointed out that First President of the Philippines is the face of the five peso coin.
“The biggest donors of Duterte are the smallest people who can only afford an Emilio Aguinaldo para sa kampanya ng #TunayNaPagbabago,” Duterte spokesperson Peter Laviña said in a Facebook post.
