One of the basic ills of our flawed electoral process we had inherited from the Marcos regime and which continues as a major problem to the present is the bloated and questionable voters’ list.

 

When the late Mr. Ferdinand Marcos called for presidential snap elections on 7 February 1986, he succeeded in disenfranchising an estimated one million two hundred thousand voters by collapsing precincts and transferring the list of voters from one precinct to another in opposition bailiwick areas.  This bad habit from the Marcos years continues to haunt us with oftentimes the sheer incompetence or inefficiency of some COMELEC personnel.  On the other hand, it has been known to all and sundry that certain unscrupulous elements considered experts in the field of elections have done more harm than good to the ordinary voting populace by using their skills in the manipulation of votes known to all as dagdag-bawas.  The charges against Mr. Garcillano in the Garci case filed before the joint committee hearings of Information, Suffrage, National Defense and Communications Technology has magnified this in perspective in the last 2004 elections, yet up to now nothing definitive has been done to guard against possible  election fraud in the coming 2007 polls.  The implementation of the Automated Electoral Systems Act cannot be enforced, according to Comelec for time constraints.
