I cast my vote in the first automated Philippine elections

I cast my voteI was voter 117 in the queue which, by UP standards, was still relatively short. The system was slow, and the people were complaining. It was only 8 am.

My number was called at around 10 am. I finished marking my ballots in less than 2 minutes. I had a list which made things easier.

So how did it feel like?

When I read "Congratulations!" on the PICOS PCOS machine, I felt like I just made history.

How did you fare?


  1. Lance! Haha. For some reason, I can't get over you wearing that shirt! Feeling ko, somehow, parang hindi ikaw. With the shades and all.

    I was really going to post something serious and democratically important here, but fashion took over. Hahahaha. I miss you! :)

  2. Kat, it's an old, plain t-shirt (and speaks nothing of my political choices, just to make that clear). Oh yes, the shades are helping in dealing with the heat. I hope they don't make me look like I'm blind.

    Can't wait to read what you have to write about the election.

  3. Lance it's PCOS not PICOS machine. Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS). HAHAHA!!!


  4. You are so smart, Paul! I didn't even know what that meant. Thank you!

  5. Thanks, Ate. I've never felt this fashionable before.
