Poll Automation

Ano po ba ang Automated Election System (AES)?

SIMULA NOONG makamit ng taumbayan ang karapatang bumoto sa halalan dito sa Pilipinas, manual system ng voting, counting at canvassing na ang nakagawian.

Kap Andres Flores ng Rosales, nagfile ka pala bilang kandidato for councilor, ang halalan noong 2004 at 2007 elections, ay mga halimbawa, kung saan naranasan natin ang napakatagal na paghihintay sa resulta.

Para mabigyan ng solusyon ang mahabang bilangan, ang RA 9369 o ang Election Modernization Law ay ginawa at pinagtibay ng congress.

Ang Automated Election System (AES) ay may layunin na… “encourage transparency, credibility, fairness and accuracy of election.”

Kaya naman ang bago sa halalan sa 2010 ay ang tinaguriang poll automation.

Para maisagawa ang poll automation, ang Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) o Optical Mark Reader (OMR) technology system ay gagamitin ng Commission on Elections (Comelec).

Sa May 10, 2010 , ang mga botante ay maglalagay ng marka sa mga maliliit na ovals na katabi ng pangalan ng kandidatong kanilang iboboto sa isang balota na 2.5 feet ang haba.

Pagkatapos, isusubo nila ang balota sa PCOS-OMR machines na babasa at bibilang sa kanilang boto at ito ay ipapadala sa Consolidating and Canvassing System (CCS) machines.

Hindi na po natin kailangang isulat ang mga pangalan ng mga iboboto natin mula presidente hanggang konsehal ng bayan.

Ang Comelec, na isang independent constitutional body ay naatasang mangasiwa ng lahat ng halalan, ay confident na maisasakatuparan ang makasaysayang poll automation.

Atty Jazon, sa halagang P11.3 billion, ang automated election system (AES) ay pagsasamahin ang isang local IT provider, isang pangunahing shipping group, at mga higante sa telecommunication.

Mga 80,000 automation units – Precinct Count Optical Scanners (PCOS) o Optical mark Readers (OMR), na may reserbang 2,000 units ang ipinagawa sa labas ng Pilipinas.

Ang AES ay kailangan maglunsad ng training para sa 400,000 teachers na mangangasiwa sa Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs), mahigit kumulang na 80,000 IT engineers, at voter’s education para sa mga 48 million na botante.

Ang tagumpay ng AES ay na kasalalay din sa infrastructure systems ng ating bansa, na kinabibilangan ng telecommunication networks, internet providers, at cites kasama na rin diyan ang road at sea networks para sa installation at operation ng AES units na ikakalat sa 80, 0000 precinct clusters.

Matagumpay sanang maisakatuparan ang poll automation.

Let us shake the foundations of traditional politics ruled by guns, goons and gold!

Let us not sell our votes!

Let us reject those who are trying to buy their votes into power!

Let us take note of electoral promises the winning politicians made in 2001, 2004 and 2007 and hold them responsible for such promises.

If they have not met their promises, let us vote for others.

Let us all call for the stricter implementation of the ban on illegal fishing and the encroachment of big foreign commercial fishing vessels on fishing grounds traditionally reserved for the hardworking fisherfolk.

Because of the San Roque Dam, the Agno River System is dead during the dry season.

Since the river is dead, no water for irrigation can be tapped from the river.

Let us call for the immediate rehabilitation of biologically dead rivers.

Let the rivers flow!

PRESIDENTE ONYOK, nagfile na rin pala ng certificate ang Abono Party List para sa 2010 upang ipagpatuloy ang mga programs and projects na nagsusulong sa pag unlad ng agrikultura na ang makikinabang ay ang mga magsasaka at mangingisda.

Finally, ang tambalang Amado Espino- Ferdie Calimlim para Governor at Vice Governor ay naitayo na.
