Bloggers’ briefing on poll automation

Isa sa mga karapatan natin bilang mga mamamayan ng isang demokratikong bansa ay ang pagpili ng mga pinunong magpapatakbo sa ating gobyerno. Kahit madalas tayong nahe-Hello Garci, may mga pagkakataong ang tinig ng bayan ay nangingibabaw at nagtatagumpay. Mas dadalas ang mga ganitong panalo ng bayan kung mababantayan natin ang eleksyon upang mapagkaitan ng pagkakataon ang mga gustong mang-Hello Garci. At para makapagbantay nang maayos, makakatulong kung alam natin ang mga proseso at teknolohiyang gagamitin sa halalan.

Bilang paghahanda sa ARMM election at sa 2010 presidential elections, samahan ninyo kami sa Bloggers’ Kapihan sa pagbusisi sa poll automation. Alamin natin kung paano gagamitin ang electronic voting machines at automated counting machines.

Narito ang paanyaya ng Bloggers’ Kapihan:
