HALAL papers submitted to the COMELEC

HALAL Secretary-general Roberto Verzola spent six weeks in April-May 2008 on a research fellowship at the University of Oxford Internet Institute in the U.K., where he studied the experiences of other countries in automating their elections.

As a result of his research, he wrote four papers which HALAL later adopted as HALAL working papers and which we later submitted to the Comelec. We also appeared in two Comelec en banc meetings to present the papers.

Among all our recommendations, the only one which the Comelec seems to have adopted was the recommendation to stay away from direct-recording electronic (DRE) machines like touch-screens and touch-pads.
