A new way of voting system has been introduced by the Basilan State College during the election of Supreme Student Council (SSC) 2017 at the BaSC Amphitheatre last Thursday, July 27, spearheaded by Sir Argie Sarco, Director of Student Affairs and Services, with the help of the Management in Information System (MIS).
A crowd of students were waiting for their turn to vote and upon entering, a wide space greeted them, introducing the SSC Electronic System, with a whole new process of voting. The first step involves the presentation of Certificate of Registration to check the Student Registry Number or Student ID for verification by comparing the hardcopy and what is in the system. After verifying, the students faces the choice he or she has to make in front of the monitor with the guide of the Board of Election Tellers and some student volunteers. From the president down to representatives, pictures and names of the candidates were materialized in the screen by the position they run for. In just a click, the votes are being casted to the system. It was not only being presented in the BaSC main campus but it was utilized in some extension campuses except for Tipo-Tipo due to power shortage and lack of resources.
"It is high-tech and it is more convenient than the traditional one" stated by Omar Kalwi Kuwah of BSND III. His statement has proved that the BaSC Institution is not stagnant but truly is moving forward.
