Voter registration is temporarily suspended in several Commission on Elections (Comelec) field offices on Tuesday due to heavy rains brought by the southwest monsoon and Tropical Storm “Henry.”

Comelec spokesman James Jimenez said voter registration is suspended in Comelec field offices in Metro Manila, Regions 4-A and 4-B, Bataan, and Bulacan beginning Tuesday noon.
