On Monday, Filipino voters showed just what they thought of their betters.

For weeks, even months before the voting, legislators, so-called IT experts, business leaders, civil society figures and the candidates themselves were saying that the automated elections would fail.

There were dire warnings of how the basic programs of the computers could be “rigged” to produce the desired results. Talk was rife of how ordinary Filipinos would be so discombobulated by the task of shading the “egg-shaped circles” and feeding a ballot into a PCOS (precinct count optical scan) machine that they would either botch the job or stay away completely.
