THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) is looking to release the lists of registered voters in the October 2023 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections (BSKE) by August 1.

The poll body has ordered the local Election Registration Boards (ERBs) to complete the verifications of the Election Day Computerized Voters Lists (EDCVLs) and Posted Computerized Voters Lists (PCVLs) on or before July 27.

“Verification of the names of voters and certification and sealing of the EDCVLs and PCVLs shall be conducted not later July 27, 2023,” said Comelec Resolution No. 10903 promulgated on March 22 and released on Tuesday.

“Posting of the verified and certified EDCVLs and PCVLs shall be made not later than August 1, 2023,” it added.

Included in the list are voters due to court inclusion orders, erroneously delisted as death, or abated through AFIS due to wrongful encoding of type of application in the Voter Registration System (VRS).

On the other other, those excluded from the verification and certification of the EDCVLs and PCVLs, are registered voters that were previously approved transfer, double/multiple registration records due to Automated Fingerprint

Identification System (AFIS) matching, death as certified by the Local Civil Registrars and court exclusion orders.

ERBs are mandated to prepare and post certified list of voters 90 days before a regular election is to be held as stated under the Voter’s Registration Act.

Based on latest Comelec data, there are a total of 68,557,452 registered voters for the village polls.

The registered youth voters are now at 23,474,978.

The voters lists are required to be posted in the Offices of the Election Officer (OEOs) and in the bulletin board of each city/municipal hall.
