We never scrapped the elections before when we were doing manual counting. SO, WHY SHOULD WE SCRAP IT JUST BECAUSE THERE ARE STILL A FEW STRAGGLERS. These automation opponents are like the Japanese stragglers who cannot believe that the war is over. Just like the stragglers, they cannot believe that the days of prehistoric manual counting is over.

How to make the Next Philippine Elections faster?
Next time, the machines should start transmitting from the time they open to the time they close. JUST DO NOT REVEAL THE NUMBERS YET UNTIL ALL POLLS HAVE CLOSED. That way, we do not have to wait until weeks after the election for the last 10% of the results. And why should we scrap the automation just because there are complaints of fraud from losers? Up to now, there are still people who cannot accept automation. They still insist on manual counting to back up what the machines counted. This, even after Comelec already refused the idea because it will just confuse everyone, which is what opponents of automation to happen. Saying that manual counting is more honest is VERY VERY STUPID. IF THE MACHINE ACCEPTED IT, THAT'S FINAL.
