Philippine Election 2010 Computerization is one of the subject that has been discussed during the iblog5, And as far as I know the Comelec has received 7 proposal from different companies with their technical and commercial offer. Now the question that I have in mind is, are we Filipinos ready for the Philippine Election 2010 Computerization ?, Some may say Yes we can and some may argue that we cannot do it. But I believe that we have to make it on a level by level approach. As an example the Comelec should implement it first with Luzon or either NCR. I don’t think it will be easy to make it in the whole country with in the remaining time which is less than a year of preparation.
I know that there are no such perfect program that cannot be hacked. As of this time it is still impossible to have a perfect system. But at least they can make the system with high security that it will be impossible for a hacker to do it on a specified time.
So for me, The government should try to do the automation and be automated. Common’ we are already in the computer stage and we should not be left behind from other countries.
I would prefer to have a computerized election and counting rather than having a manual counting that will take weeks just to know the winner. Just do it.
So Will you go for Computerized or Remain in Manual Election ? Opinions are welcome .
