Philippine Poll Automation – the saga continues

barely less than a year left, finally the Philippine Senate just approved the PhP11.3bil budget for the automation of the 2010 elections. the supplemental budget according to the commission on elections (comelec) will serve to lease 80thou precinct count optical scans.

now awaiting the signature of PGMA, then the bidding for the machine starts. looks like we’ll gonna have an automated poll by 2010 after all! let’s wait & see… as from past experience, politics happen even during the bidding + some groups worry that the automation would still not eradicate fraudulent results.

damn politics! if they only knew how much life would be easier for everyone if this get’s done.. as they say, if there’s a will there’s a way.. and if they really wanna cheat, they’ll find ways to do it (no matter what)!

anyway, this poll automation is a good saga to follow, let’s all see what comes next!
