“So mataas na ito, so hopefully madadagdagan pa ito in the coming days,” Abas added.

(This number is already high, hopefully more will register in the coming days.)

The present number of voters already exceeded the total number of voters in the 2019 elections at 61,843,771.

The voter registration period is now extended from October 11 to 30.
