The recent election in the Philippines seems to be more orderly and results are faster despite some minor glitches involving the PCOS machine used.

Credibility wise, final reports on the results will be verified first by one election body with the other – to see if they are similar and no discrepancies whatsoever. Candidates can also request for manual counting if irregularities are observed. Here’s the demonstration of the PCOS machine system  just in case you’re wondering how it works:

  1. Electronic voting machines were introduced in India around 20 years back and so far it’s successful. However there were instances of misusing Electronic Voting Machines too. But from the demo it looks different from the Electronic Voting System from here. Hopefully it’ll provide a cleaner way of bringing right candidates.
