The Halalan Convention

Tuesday, June 28, 2005 at 1:40 PM

Ibahin mo ang kabataan.

Even if the government wasn't able to implement an automated voting system for the national elections, students of UP Diliman are ready to prove that they can computerize their own university elections.

Presenting...Halalan: Ograsiah!, courtesy of the UP Linux Users' Group (UnPLUG).

Anyone who's interested can drop by the Halalan Convention on Thursday. Here's the official press release of UnPLUG, freely lifted from Prem's weblog:

The University of the Philippines Linux Users’ Group (UnPLUG)

The Halalan Convention

A public consultation on the specifications of the new Halalan (codename: Ograsiah!), next year’s mobile-based voting system

this 30th of June, 2005
at the National Engineering Center Audio-Visual Room (AVR),
University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City

If you want to contribute to Halalan’s design, please come. This is a special call to all UP parties, organizations, fraternities, sororities, etc.

The University of the Philippines Linux Users’ Group (UnPLUG) is a duly recognized student organization dedicated in promoting the use of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and in advocating its philosophy through seminars, trainings, and software development.

In line with our purpose, we will be holding a convention, entitled “The Halalan Convention”, to allow the whole UP Community to participate in the drafting of the specification of the new Halalan codenamed “Ograsiah!” and to answer different issues the UP Community might want to raise about it. Halalan is an open-source voting system designed for student elections. It aims to automate the manual processes of elections such as counting, archiving and voting. It is designed to be lightweight, portable and secure.

Thanks. But then, only a handful of people attended. :(
