The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is considering whether to incorporate modern technology in the national…
Comelec plans to use cutting-edge equipment for the 2025 elections.
Voters will be able to check if their ballots have been tallied on machines with high-speed scanning capabilities and screens that are at least 13 inches wide, according to the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
In order to assure greater transparency and quicker results, Comelec Chairperson George Garcia said they will be looking for the aforementioned elements in the new automated system they aim to use in the 2025 elections.
“We wish to employ a system where the device transmits to the relevant party simultaneously and all at once. At the Manila City Hall Reporters’ Association (MACHRA) Balitaan sa Harbor View on Tuesday, he stated, “We also want to have a big screen so that the voters would be able to see the complete ballot (front and back) on the screen.
The head of the polling organization continued, “I don’t see more transparency than that.”
Garcia explained that the technology allows observers to photograph the ballots for later manual counting, but by that point, the machines have already relayed the results to prevent any canvassing delays.
He also stated that the terms of reference (TOR), which they want to release this week, are being accelerated.
By July, they also hope to begin the automated system’s purchase procedure.
“Even if the voting system is excellent, if people don’t grasp it, they won’t be able to cast their votes correctly. Voters’ education and information will always be the foundation for trust, he continued. (PNA)
