While the whole country is keeping its fingers crossed with the continuance of the Automated National Elections, Escuela de Nuestra Señora de La Salette, a De La Salle Supervised School, will be having its 4th Automated Elections this June. The initiative has radically reduced the post-election stress, tension and work as the counting of ballots will be done automatically. Right after the last voter, the results can be viewed, printed, and validated already. Virtual ballots can also be easily printed when a recount is needed.

Mr. Rex Lor, La Salette’s VP for Administrative Services & Development, introduced the idea that it would not just speed up the democratic process but also instill the value of honesty and sacredness of one’s right to vote.
“The on-line voting system does not just teach different applications of Information Technology, but also integrates values important in ensuring a just society. This will teach the students that there are other more efficient alternatives to the traditional manual voting system,” Lor stressed.

Benchmarked from the University of the Philippines, the on-line voting system is designed to be as user-friendly as possible to ensure that even grade school students can easily use it. It follows a three-step process: Step 1: LOG-IN; Step 2: VOTE; Step 3: CONFIRM VOTE. Students will be able to view the profile of the candidate by way of clicking an icon beside their names. A username and password is provided to the students just before the voting starts as the school’s official enrolment list will be the basis for the registration.
