House participates in the Comelec project “Register Anywhere”
To increase the number of people who are registered to vote for the next elections, the House of Representatives has joined the Commission on Elections (Comelec) Register Anywhere Project.
After signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on Tuesday at the Batasan facility in Quezon City, Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez and Comelec Chairman George Erwin Garcia became the newest government body to take part in the project.
Romualdez stated, “Our participation in this great undertaking is our tiny contribution to the Comelec’s efforts to register as many voters as possible.
In order for them to exercise their right to vote in future elections, he stated, “we invite our House members, personnel, and their dependents and relatives, as well as those of associated agencies, and our people in general, to take advantage of this offsite or satellite listing scheme.”
Representative Maximo Dalog Jr. of Mount Province, who chairs the Committee on Suffrage and Electoral Reforms, gave the opening remarks at the MOU signing ceremony, which was also attended by other House and Comelec officials.
The registration at the Batasan has been made known to chamber members, staffers, congressional staffers, and workers of affiliated agencies by House Secretary General Reginald Velasco.
Registration for House members, employees, and agency personnel will take place on January 25 and 26, while registration for their dependents will take place on January 27, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., according to a memo from Velasco.
The registration process will take place at the complex’s North Wing Lobby. Those who will turn 15 by October 30, 2023, are eligible to register for the Sangguniang Kabataan election, which is scheduled for that day this year.
The House would also provide a Covid-19 antigen test for 30 Comelec personnel as part of the House-Comelec MOU, in addition to the registration location and related conditions.
The polling organization would provide the necessary staff, registration devices, laptops, and other equipment in the meantime.
The Comelec would accept senior citizen and disabled voter updates as well as new registrations, reactivations, transfers of registration, transfers from post to local in the case of foreign voters, and new registrations.
In addition to its normal listing, the Comelec is also conducting offsite registration in all of its field offices around the nation.
Beginning on December 12, 2012, registration will continue through the end of this month.
