She said in a letter sent to Sun.Star Pampanga that CMFR will create an interactive hotspots map that will plot the areas the Philippine National Police (PNP) and Commission on Elections (Comelec) have classified as "hotspots" or have been included in their "election watchlist."

"We are aiming to have the hotspots map ready and uploaded in the CMFR website by Monday next week," Escandor said.

Escandor said anyone willing to contribute to the hotspots map are most welcome.
