Comelec receives 2022 elections source code from US
MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) received on Wednesday the source code and the final trusted build for the automated election system for the 2022 elections.
The source code and trusted build were brought from Huntsville, Alabama, after the US-based International agency Pro V&V Inc. conducted the source code review of the trusted build led by its chief Executive officer and director, Ryan Jackson Cobb.
The source code — saved in USB sticks, sealed in envelopes, and signed — will be deposited at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), where these will be held in escrow, as mandated by the Poll Automation Law.
As of this writing, the source code is under the custody of the Comelec information technology department.
The system will be tested during the mock elections on Dec. 29.
