Comelec urged: Do manual audit in poll hot spots

MANILA, Philippines – The National Citizens’ Movement for Free Elections (Namfrel) on Thursday urged the Commission on Elections to do a random manual audit of voting in election hot spots during the May 10 automated elections.

In a statement read by Namfrel Chairman Jose Cuisia, the poll watchdog said a random manual audit should be done after the transmission of votes to polling servers but prior to the proclamation of the winners. He added that the manual audit should be done in hot spot areas, should involve a sample size that will ensure a 95% confidence level, and that precincts to be audited should be picked 6 hours after the close of polls.

Cuisia said the manual audit should be done by boards of election inspectors from another precinct.
