Dateline: “A Briefer on Poll Automation – Why it is Expected to Fail”

The title above is actually the title of an excellent paper on the risk of failure of the Philippine May 10 automated elections prepared by the “Citizens’ Alliance Against Electoral Fraud and Failure of Elections” and posted on the website of Dateline Philippines. The full text is on this Dateline site. [I’ve been told that the updated link is here. I will keep the old site, just in case…]

The paper is a very well-researched piece. It adds flesh to our own analysis at Halalang Marangal that the automated election process has a dismal 25% chance of success.

For several days, the Dateline site was offline, which was puzzling because few people seem to have accessed the site (the site counter said 88, when I last looked at it). The site is online again.
