the misunderstanding on automated election – not for speed of voting process but for accuracy of counting

May 10, 2010 3 comments

the election is on going in most parts of  the country. the complaints are not on the PCOS machine malfunctioning but on the long wait for voters to get on with the voting. this is frustrating a lot of voters specially now that we experiencing a heat wave.

voters are complaining about the long lines leading to the polling precinct, the inability to quickly confirm the precinct number and the wait to get a ballot and vote. once inside the polling precinct,  it takes the voter anywhere from 6 to 8 minutes from filling up the ballot and getting the PCOS machine.

the long lines are  not being caused by the automated election system that the country is doing for the first time  in its history. unfortunately most people thought that speed in voting is one of the things it is supposed to solve.

automated election was meant to solve accuracy in the counting of the votes, also to a large degree prevent election cheating and speed up the counting process, not speed in voting during the election process. where before it took the country to get election results after several weeks, the automated election  will enable the country to get the results after 2 days at the longest.

what the voters need now is patience, an umbrella and water to drink while in line.

voting machine (PCOS) fails – what should we do?
