New voting system to be tested
Central Electoral Board (JCE) president Roberto Rosario has announced that this Sunday, 10 April 2016 they will run a test to check if the new voting system for the May elections is working properly. He said they would be visiting around 2,000 centers, which will include transmission centers and voting centers to test the new technology.
Rosario said there would always be some things that needed amending and they needed to look for any weaknesses in the system in time to change them.
The JCE president said that along with the 60,000 military and police agents from the Electoral Security Commission, more than 80,000 people were working in the Electoral Colleges with 170,000 in total including technicians.
Finally he said that the JCE now had the best electoral roll in its history with a new Electoral Identity Card and the use of fingerprint technology. All voters will have to commence the voting process by registering their fingerprints in a special device that will then be matched to their identity card to enable them to vote.
