Shun violence, just vote in peace

I am from San Fernando, Pampanga, and I am glad that soldiers from the Northern Luzon Command and other field units are assisting the police to maintain peace and order in today’s barangay (village) elections. Our barangay is among the 214 Central Luzon villages that have been classified as “hot spots.”

Credibility

By

First off, an appreciation for automated elections. A day after the elections, we already knew the winners, or at least the winning senators. That’s one sea change.

Elections then and now

By

Voting was uneventful where I voted last Monday. No election irregularities, no machine breaking down or jamming. It just took so long—a little past two hours—from the time I entered the barangay hall to the time the machine flashed the message that I had voted successfully. A drop of indelible ink applied on my finger was the last step in a process that should’ve taken just a little more than half an hour. If I were a senior citizen I would have finished in half the time, but I struggle, vainly, to keep from entering middle age. I endured a long, slowly moving line to get the ballot, a long piece of paper that reminded me of school and multiple-choice exams.
