Election 2016 VP Tally and Cheating Allegations

By: Jerome Auza The Vice Presidential race has become so heated and allegations of cheating are flying all over traditional media and social media. Technical buzzwords suddenly became topics of conversations which added to the confusion. The terms hash, character encoding, digital signature and many more are discussed by people who are not necessarily experts on these matters. The issues started when Bongbong Marcos initially led the unofficial tally but was quickly overtaken by Leni Robredo. The two candidates now have votes over 13M each but Robredo leads only by a thin margin. Marcos alleged that COMELEC modified the tally. The allegation became somewhat credible because a Smartmatic programmer made a cosmetic change on the software to properly display the enye character which initially showed up as a question mark. To make matters worse, the programmer broke protocol because he did not get an approval from the COMELEC before making the change. Fortunately for the Filipino people, COMELEC did the right process in conducting the random manual audit (RMA). In a previous post, I expressed my worry that the RMA could be manipulated because the initial reports was that the precincts to be audited are to be selected before the elections. However, in the 2016 elections, the actual precincts for audit were selected on May 10 or after the election results were transmitted to the servers. This means any form of cheating at the vote counting machine (VCM) level can be detected. Any modification of tally results can be verified from any of the three independent servers that the VCMs connected to and submitted the results. One server is...

Digital Bohol to be launched soon

Bohol will soon enjoy a digital transformation as talks of “Digital Bohol” were initiated on August 27, 2016 at the Governor’s Mansion with Gov. Edgar M. Chatto, representatives of the Bohol Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Bohol ICT Council, tourism players and some advisers. During the meeting, the group discussed the high level steps that will be taken for the Digital Bohol project. Among the components of the Digital Bohol project is a co-working space and shared facility for multimedia arts and a recording studio for developing audio and video content, connectivity for communications during disaster situations as well as for broadcasting announcements for government, business and academe, digital economy participation for MSMEs and more. The first action is to organize the self forming and organizing communications network that can be used for broadcasting important information during non-disaster scenarios. The same network can be used during disaster situations when cell sites are disabled. The idea is to setup the channels and organize Boholanos to use it on a daily basis for broadcasting important information so that everybody is ready to use the system during disaster scenarios. Users only need to use their smart phones using WiFi and Bluetooth connections. Another meeting was held with the technology enthusiasts and young entrepreneurs was held at Just Sizzling restaurant at 8PM on August 27.
