MANILA, Philippines — Voter registration in the National Capital Region (NCR) Plus will resume on May 17 as quarantine classification in the area was eased, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) announced Friday.

“With this development, the Commission decided to again, open up registration from Monday to Fridays from eight o’clock to five o’clock in the afternoon in areas under general community quarantine or modified general community quarantine,” the Comelec said.

The Comelec earlier suspended voter registration in NCR Plus—composed of Metro Manila, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, and Rizal—following the imposition of strict enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in the area amid rising COVID-19 cases.
