Automated polls roll in Nueva Vizcaya

by Ben Moses Ebreo

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (May 10) -- As early as 7:00 am, as voters in 15 municipalities here started to line up in their respective precincts.

Some voters in this province who expected a delay in the first automated elections brought with them their lunch as they wait for their turn to vote.

Earlier, volunteers of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) reported that several PCOS machines have failed to operate in some precincts in the towns of Kayapa, Aritao, Bambang, Bayombong, Solano, Quezon and Villaverde.

The incident prompted other voters to go home for a while and would return on the later part of the day.

"Almost all precincts have already conducted their field testing of the more than 400 Precinct Count Optical Scan(PCOS) machines delivered in clustered precincts in the province," lawyer Erwin Valeroso, provincial election officer, in a public statement here said.

He said that considering the possible technical problems posed by the PCOS machines, "election shall go on even in the upland areas as technicians from the Smarmatic are on a standby mode ready to provide technical assistance.

Valeroso however assured voters in this province that all PCOS machines have been delivered in their respective assignments and secured by joint PNP and Philippine Army soldiers.

He also urged voters to come early and cast their votes to avoid unnecessary delays in the course of the first automated elections in the country.

"I assure our voters that no manual counting will be done here," Valeroso said. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
