MANILA, Philippines (AP) -- More than a million candidates took part in the Philippines' latest rambunctious exercise in democracy amid tight security Monday, seeking nuts-and-bolts posts that keep the country running.

The 120,000-strong Philippine police force was on full alert for the national holiday to guard against fraud and violence, with at least 23 candidates or followers killed since the election season began last month, police Director-General Avelino Razon Jr. said.

Voting also was marred by flooding, landslides and a school fire. The candidates are vying for nearly 672,000 posts in 42,000 villages, known as barangays. Read More>>>

Bulacan Villages Under Watch

The Philippine National Police in Bulacan, meanwhile, said it is now keeping an eye on nine barangays in the province.

Senior Superintendent Asher Dolina, Bulacan police chief, identified the "areas of concern" as the villages of Pungo, Sto. NiƱo and Meyto in Calumpit town; Niugan in Angat; Pulong Buhangin in Sta. Maria; and Muzon and San Isidro in San Jose del Monte City.

Dolina also named Barangay Sibul in San Miguel town and Barangay Akle in San Ildefonso as "areas of immediate concern."

He said police and military contingents will beef up security to maintain peace and order in these areas.

Dolina, meanwhile, reported the arrest of Marlon Gascon, 29, of Pandi town for violating the COMELEC gun ban. Gascon was arrested for alleged possession of an M-16 rifle, two magazines with live ammunition and a .38 pistol.

In Sta. Maria town, three alleged supporters of former mayor Ato Mateo poured gasoline on an Elf truck in Barangay Catmon.

Supporters of incumbent Sta. Maria Mayor Omeng Ramos were on board when the suspects doused the truck with gasoline. No one was reported hurt when the suspects set the truck on fire.
