Comelec, NGO to launch town hall meetings to amp voter registration
MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec), along with non-profit organization Vote Pilipinas, have joined forces to launch Town Hall meetings to promote voter registration.
The first online Town Hall, under the “Magparehistro Ka!” campaign, will begin on Thursday, at 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will be live streamed through Zoom and Facebook.
Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon will give the keynote address before the presentation of data on voter registration by Comelec spokesman James Jimenez, and Vote Pilipinas lead convenor Ces Rondario.
These Town Hall meetings will also feature latest data on election, updates on Vote Pilipinas, showcase sessions with some of Luzon’s Office of Election Officers (OEOs), and opportunities to ask Comelec any questions on the registration process.
There are now 60 million registered voters in the country, according to the latest available data from the poll body.
