We are also currently learning how to use frontline in a quick count of the first automated election in the Philippines, and 1st in asia. We will use it to transmit election results and for fraud reporting.
May I ask you guys for suggestion of how to go about with this? What we are building is SMS based reporting of over 2000 people who will be sending us election results. What we have planned so far is to format the sms by putting a keyword and sorting it using commas. We must get the result of over 600 candidates from national to local, so there will be a lot of commas. I know through reading here that it can be saved as a csv file that can be manually exported later. But, we envision an SMS system that is connected to a database which updates itself automatically everytime an SMS comes in.
We have not consulted any IT expert yet because we are very busy with the preparations. I hope you can discuss it here, maybe just what I would need to make this happen so I can easily discuss it with anyone who has an IT background.
We ask your help for such a big event in our history.
Thank you very much
