LA TRINIDAD, Benguet -- Despite the halt in the deployment of 48 precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines, local Commission on Elections (Comelec) officer Bernoulli Binayan assures that people are ready for the automated polls.

Binayan said dissemination of voters information sheets have started since April and will end on the day before the election.

Ongoing information campaigns have also been held to inform the citizenry on the upcoming polls.

There are 48 clustered precincts in the valley, which will be given three Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) with 34,779 voters expected to cast their votes in the country's first automated election.

Binayan said there will be 23 technicians on standby if the PCOS machines encounter technical problems.

"We do not need the satellite machines for the valley (La Trinidad), the broadband signal is enough," Binayan said.

The local Comelec with the police in the town are awaiting the signal of the national office on the resumption of deployment of PCOS machines for security detail to be assigned. (Maria Elena Catajan)
