Handouts: Election Day Guide (Gabay Para Sa Mga Botante)/ Comelec Resolution No. 8839

Posted by lawinnovations on May 8, 2010

We’ve prepared a one-page guide to voting (English and Filipino versions) which the Filipino voters can bring with them to the polling places as they cast their ballots on election day. Given that the experience of automated elections is novel, there likely will be some confusion at the precinct places, and rampant opportunity to exploit if not frustrate the sacred right to suffrage. This guide, which is based on Comelec Resolution No. 8786 issued last 6 March 2010, will hopefully arm and protect the voter, providing an immediate reference for them should any questions or challenges arise on election day. The guides are in PDF format, please feel free to mass produce them if you wish and give out to friends, family and neighbors.

Law Innovations is a strictly non-partisan organization, and this project was developed solely at our own initiative, without the assistance of any political organization (or anybody else actually). We do however urge our voters to vote deliberately and wisely.

Last April 30, the COMELEC released Resolution No. 8839, which details the Contingency Procedures to be observed should there be problems in the operation of the Automated Election System. The Resolution is available at the COMELEC website, but should there be problems accessing the same, it is available for download here.
