PIA Press Release

Comelec urges info officers to educate the public

by <Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (10 March) -- The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) has urged members of the Capiz Association of Public Information Officers (CAGPIO) to help educate the public about the new voting system.

This came after members of the CAGPIO led by its president, Engineer Julius Abela of the Department of Public Works and Highways, attended an orientation on the new voting system at the Dinggoy Roxas Civic Center with Roxas City Election Officer Lawyer Jomar Betita.

Betita said that with equipped knowledge of the information officers in Capiz, they could help the COMELEC in informing and educating the public on the manner of voting as well as on the "do and doníts."

Betita emphasized the two important aspects in the May 10, 2010 Automated National and Local Elections, namely receiving the ballot and counting of votes.

During said orientation, Betita had also given the CAGPIO members observe on how the Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machine works, particularly in the counting of votes.

The use of the PCOS will shorten the burden of manual counting and transmission of election results from precinct level to municipal and provincial board of canvassers, he said.

The orientation on the new voting system as well as PCOS demonstration by the COMELEC was part of the activities facilitated by the Philippine Information Agency in Capiz after the election of the new set of CAGPIO officers for this year.

The CAGPIO is an organization of all public information officers from the national government agencies, government owned and controlled corporations as well as local government units in the province which is being spearheaded by the PIA. (PIA) [top]
