Comelec prepares for new polls

(HIDDEN AGENDA By Mary Ann LL. Reyes The Philippine Star) | Updated September 21, 2014 – 12:00am
The Commission on Elections is putting in place a slew of reforms and new initiatives meant to replicate, if not surpass, the success it had in the two previous national polls.
In addition to adopting the “multiple or mixed technologies” proposal of the multi-sectoral Comelec Advisory Council (CAC), Comelec will partially use a Biometric Voter Identification Apparatus, which can identify a registered voter at once using his thumbprint; look into Internet voting by seafarers and other overseas Filipino workers (OFWs); address the problem of long queues come election day by trimming the number of voters per precinct from the current 1,000 average to about 600-800 per station and at the same adding more voting precincts nationwide; and institutionalize or allow the early review by political parties and other interested parties of the source code of all components of existing technologies for use or re-use in the next elections.


I am a Responsible and Principled Citizen.

I will educate myself and others about the issues at hand so that my vote is a meaningful and relevant exercise of my right of suffrage.

I pledge to vote for candidates who will abide by the duly constituted rules on campaigning because I understand that those who refuse to obey the law in the little things are not likely to obey the law in the more important things;

I pledge to vote for candidates who, by word and action, renounce violence, coercion, vote-buying, and corruption as means for getting elected;

I pledge to vote for the candidates who listen to their constituents and are responsive to the needs and aspirations of those they seek to represent;

I pledge to vote as my conscience dictates in all elections.

I make these promises freely and upon my honor.

(This Voter Pledge was read at the Unity Walk of 13 January 2013, by COMELEC Commissioner Elias R. Yusoph)
