The coming May 10 - National Election is the first automated election in the country, in hoe COMELEC defined automated, they specify that its not the voting that is computerized cos its still manual, what is automated is the counting of votes which i agree with them. As far as i remember, there are variety of ways to cheat in the manual elections, i served and elction before so i knew the processes and how they can do their tricks. I am quite happy with the recent development unfortunately it doesnt erased the doubts that maybe the cheating will also be high tech. Considering that todays high tech gadgets can even hacked even the most safe and secured banks transactions. BUt i also have some trusts and confidence with the election body that hopefully they will be true to their oath - to be in service with the Filipino people, with pride and integrity.
