by RB Manlangit

Daet, Camarines Norte (27 February) -- The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) here has recently conducted a demonstration on the use of Precinct Count Optical Scan or PCOS machine in preparation for the May 10, 2010 automated national and local elections.

Local politicians, COMELEC-deputized agencies, heads of agencies and local government units (LGUs) across the province took their time to test and scrutinize the capability and credibility of the equipment all vying for clean and honest elections.

Atty. Annie A. Romero-Cortez, provincial elections supervisor, meanwhile disclosed that the number of registered voters per municipality in the first district totaling to 138,078 and 123, 956 in the second district or a total of 262,034 registered voters in the whole province.

Smartmatic-TIM representatives, on the other hand, demonstrated the use of PCOS machines, from insertion of the ballots, to counting, and transmission of results.

COMELEC Assistant Regional Director Atty. Romeo B. Fortes, clarified that the agency is doing its best to speed up preparations for the coming elections, specially on demonstration of the PCOS machine and educating voters and the general populace on the poll automation.

He added that similar activities were held in the first congressional district. (PIA CamNorte) [top]
