Election 2010 – A Historical One

Today I witnessed the Philippine’s first ever election votes being automatically tabulated by PCOS machines. I went back to the Talakag Voting Center at 7:00 tonight as the precincts officially closed to see how the new system works. You can also follow the process through the photos below.
Everything went almost smoothly, except that the modems were either very slow or not working during the electronic transmission of the results to SB Legislative Building where the Board of Canvassers and the COMELEC Officials are consolidating all results. This resulted delays of 2 to 5 hours in announcing the official results per precinct.

As of 11:00 tonight, only 50 percent of the whole Talakag precincts have successfully transmitted their results to the Center. However, compared to previous elections, this is still a record! Watch out for the complete official results here tomorrow.
