THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) is ready for the resumption of voter registration starting Monday, July 4.

“Ang pagpapatuloy ng voters registration ay magsisimula bukas, July 4, 2022hanggang July 23, 2022… Lunes-Sabado, mula 8:00 a.m. hanggang 5:00 p.m.,” he said.

Laudiangco said voter applicants may go to the Office of the Election Officer in their respective district or city or municipality during the said period from Monday to Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. including holidays.

The spokesperson said the Comelec is targeting new voters for the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) polls to register during the registration period.

“Ang target sa voters registration ay ‘yung mga bagong botante para sa Sangguniang Kabataan (SK)… Ito ‘yung mga magiging 15 years o 15 years old to 17 years old… Kung hindi pa 15 pero magfi-15 years old by December 5, 2022, pwede nang magparehistro,” he said.

Meanwhile, Laudiangco said those who are qualified to apply to vote for the regular elections including barangay elections are those who will be 18 years old by December 5.

“Para naman sa ating regular registration kasama na ‘yung sa barangay dito, ‘yung mag-e-18 years old on or before December 5,” he said.

The barangay and SK elections will be held on December 5, 2022.

Laudiangco said those who can vote for the SK polls are those aged 15 to 30 years old, while those who can vote for the barangay elections are those aged 18 years old and above.

“Nakasaad sa batas na kailangan isagawa ang Barangay at SK elections sa December 5… Hangga’t walang batas para ‘wag itong ituloy, tuloy ang paghahanda ng Comelec,” he added.

Meanwhile, voters who were taken off the voters list may apply online for the reactivation of their records.

The online application for reactivation will be from July 4 to 19.

Voters will have to send an email to the official email address of the Office of the Election Officer in their locality.

However, this does not apply to voters who will reactivate their records and transfer locality at the same time.
