Comelec website down an hour after polling precincts open

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) website was down just an hour after the polling precincts nationwide opened at 7 a.m.
The website contained the precinct finder which shows the precinct details of voters. 
GMA News Online earlier reported that the precinct finder generates the wrong location via Google Maps for some registered voters. 
As of posting time, Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez has yet to respond for a statement.
The country is having its second nationwide automated elections on Monday. Polling precincts nationwide opened at 7 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m. — RSJ, GMA News
