An official of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Thursday said that discrepancies found between electronically transmitted data and printed election returns in some areas were caused by “human errors” wherein Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) transmitted results from two different memory cards.

Comelec spokesman James Jimenez pointed to situations where public school teachers transmitted the results from the main memory card but then printed results from the back-up memory card that contains the results of the testing and sealing procedures conducted before election day, May 10.

Jimenez said that “huge discrepancy” was found during verification of vote results where the electronic count tallied with the number of voters in a certain area but the printed election returns only showed 10 votes.

He added that since the back-up memory cards contain only 10 ballot results from the testing and sealing, the transmitted vote results from the main memory cards could not tally with the printed election results from the back-up memory card.

Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines contain two cards—the main memory card where the vote results will be saved and the back-up memory card where results from the testing and sealing procedures will be saved.
