THE Commission on Elections (Comelec), in its regular en banc session, issued a directive to respond to usual problems being experienced in the ongoing voter registration, particularly in dealing with long lines and compliance with minimum public health standards (MPHS).

According to Acting Comelec spokesperson Atty. John Rex Laudiangco, the Comelec en banc already ordered the Office of the Deputy Executive Director for Operations and Election and Barangay Affairs Department to coordinate with the Comelec field offices for better off-site and satellite registration, particularly in malls for the convenience and safety of the public.

He added that the poll body’s en banc also ordered the continuation of the public information drives in relation to the voter registration.

Last Monday, the Comelec said that there was a high turnout of applicants on the first day of voter registration in the country.

Voter registration that started in July 4, 2022 will continue until July 23, 2022.

Registration is open Monday to Saturday, including holidays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in all Comelec city and municipal offices where satellite and off-site registrations are being held.

The next voting activity will be the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections (BSKE), which will be held on December 5, 2022.
