PCOS machine delivery in Davao starts today

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (6 May) -- Total of 1,172 Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines have been distributed to the various polling schools in Davao City.

Fifty-three PCOS machines have already been transferred from Diamond Warehouse where these machines were delivered after shipment to the different clustered precincts in Marilog District.

This is the first batch of PCOS machine delivery for the city after the delivery of machines to nearby provinces in Region XI done earlier this week

For Davao, there are about 63 contingency machines delivered serving as back-up. Along with it are ballot boxes with cover, batteries, BGAN units, and back-up batteries.

Third district Comelec election officer Usman Abas Jr. said that the delivery of PCOS to polling areas started this afternoon (May 6) and is expected to continue tomorrow until all other districts be served.

"We will have four batches today and we?ll try to start the delivery of PCOS to the first district this evening", he said.

Smartmatic regional coordinator Jerry Flores bared that the team removed the compact flash cards inserted in the machines yesterday until early morning today

The team is expecting the arrival of the re-configured CF cards tonight (May 6) and will be distributed to the Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) after the final testing of the PCOS machine.

Flores was told that the target day for final testing of the machines is on May 8. (PIA) [top]
