Voter registration efforts will pick back up on July 4 according to a statement made…
By late November, voter registration may begin again: Comelec
In late November, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) hopes to resume voter registration efforts.
According to Comelec spokesperson John Rex Laudiangco, registration activities will continue once the bill delaying the December 2022 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections (BSKE) becomes law.
“According to our projections, voter registration might be resumed by the final week of November if the BSKE postponement measure is enacted into law in October. All that will be needed to ensure a flawless system is the deployment of the supplies and training of our personnel. It should start by the final week of November, “During a Laging Handa briefing, Laudiangco added.
He stated that the event would be distinguished by Metro Manila’s first use of the “register anywhere” technology.
“People will be able to register anywhere as we bring the registration procedure closer to them. Because it would be done in malls, it would also be convenient. In Metro Manila, we’ll test this out first. We can tell you that if it is a success and the necessary technology infrastructure is in place, it will be implemented over the entire Philippines, “Added he.
Even if the mall is outside of the city or municipality where they live, the system will allow users to register there.
The Senate and the House of Representatives have already approved the legislation delaying the Dec. 5 BSKE to the final Monday of October 2023.
Before becoming a law, it needs to be signed by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
