Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — Leni Robredo, one of the candidates for vice president, left Manila Saturday night to embark on a 12-hour bus ride to Naga City. The Camarines Sur 3rd District Rep. cast her vote just this morning, after a two-hour wait due to a malfunctioning vote-counting machine.
Hannah Reyes, a photojournalist and 'National Geographic' Explorer, joined Robredo on that trip home, chronicling her election journey from the bus ride all the way to the polling precinct. Below are snapshots of her two days on the trail with Robredo and her supporters.
