AS I SEE IT
By Neal Cruz
MANY people worry that the automated poll machines will fail, or at least there will be glitches in some of them (Murphy’s Law: “If anything can go wrong, it will go wrong”), or there will be power failure in some precincts and the batteries in the PCOS machines will run out. But the one problem many do not consider is “human.” Counting of votes has been automated, in the first place, because counting by humans is very inaccurate and prone to cheating. Also, counting by humans is very slow, and the slower the count, the more chances of cheating. Counting by machines would take only a few hours, as contrasted with human counting which takes many days, and even weeks. But even with automation, there would inevitably be counting by humans—when some machines fail for a variety of reasons.
