Sitting queue at the COMELEC (Commission on Elections) voters registration in this precinct

Rows of chair are sometimes provided in queues for relief and comfort. The sequence is usually row by row (not column by column).  Specifically, row 1:column 1, then row 1:column 2, then row 1 column 3row 2:column 1, row 2:column 2, row 2:column 3… and so on.
