Comelec-Aklan, targets additional Polling Precincts

With the use of PCOS machines, the 2010 Elections was a successful.

Thereby, Provincial Commission on Election/Comelec Supervisor, Atty. Ian Lee Ananoria perceives that it will be the same for the 2013 mid-term elections.

However Ananoria had observed the very long lines in some polling precincts in the past
The matter which made them consider setting up some additional precincts for a more promptly voting for the public on the coming election.

This is the solution that they are seeing, especially that the number of voters had rise.

Back in the 2010, some difficulties had been encountered upon the implementation of the usage of the PCOS such as the lack of signal in some parts of Aklan. This had caused them to transfer to another area in order for the machines to transmit data. This had also caused some complexity among other individuals as that was the first election where the machines have been used.

Meanwhile, as the filing of the Certificates of Candidacy or COCs has ended last October 05, the Comelec has immediately opened their office for registrations, transfers, and re-activations of voters to be qualified in taking part for the 2013 mid-term elections.
