Automated Election on The Correspondents

Is the Philippines ready for the automated elections?

Join Karen Davila as she examines the Precinct Count Optical Scanner (PCOS ) machines, which will be used to count the votes in the upcoming 2010 elections this Tuesday (Feb 16) on “The Correspondents” on ABS-CBN.

Three months before May 10, 2010 comes in, preparations for the very first automated elections in the Philippines is on-going. Others are already expecting for a faster and cleaner result.

However, in the mock elections conducted by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Araullo High School, there were instances when the PCOS machine did not accept the ballots, did not count the votes due to wrong shadings in the ballot, and did not send results to the main source due to lack of signal.

Visit for other issues tackled in the program. Join Karen Davila as she looks into the pros and cons of using PCOS machines this Tuesday (Feb 16) on “The Correspondents,” after “Bandila” on ABS-CBN.
