After a successful national automated election last May, it’s back to the old manual counting of votes for public school teachers who served as Board of Election Tellers. I wish the Commission on Elections allowed the simultaneous conduct of national and local elections last May so the rented PICOP machines could be used to count the votes of Barangay and SK officials.
Poor teachers are back to manual tallying of votes again. I’m sure most of them stayed overnight for the counting and canvassing of votes in their respective precincts. It would be best if they apply some under eye creams to freshen up their eye area…With all their hard work, I just hope teachers will get the proper compensation from the government (on time).
