Handwritten Illustration: Election Voting System


“2016 Election” in the sample ballot in Figure 3. Figure 4 is cute but terrible for it can make someone a president of the Philippines in 2016


I came across this photocopied handwritten information with illustrations, promoting an election voting tool that is manual yet fast. Handwritten illustrations, instructions, including handwritten maps have certain kind of appeal to me. I’ve picked this somewhere in the exhibit area on an empty table but only get to read it at home. So, I didn’t get to see this “fast manual” tool at the Science Nation unlike the Smartmatic’s state-of-the-art touch screen voting machine, a super upgraded PCOS system where I got to touch the candidate’s name with picture beside it to cast my trial vote.


They even made a pitch on the lower left “The excitement and suspense in watching the counting of votes can still be experienced!”

Well, this election voting system on paper says no electricity needed. Voting will be fast for instead of writing, one just needs to punch holes. Reminds me of the beginnings of computing systems where punched cards were used.  Also reminds me of the paper bus tickets in the country.  An entertaining read.
