Voter registration resumes in August – Comelec
MANILA, Philippines — Voter registration is expected to resume on August 1, 2019 and will continue until September 30, 2019, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) said on Friday.
“Voter registration is expected to run from August 1 to September 30, 2019, inclusive of Saturdays and holidays,” Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez said in a statement.
Jimenez said that around 2 million new voters are expected to register during this period.
“Sangguniang Kabataan voters need not register anew upon turning 18; their names will automatically be transferred, from the SK List of Voters to the regular List of Voters,” he added.
There were 61,843,771 registered voters in the May midterm elections. (Editor: Mike U. Frialde)
