MANILA, Philippines–The voting hours for the national elections next year are set from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., which can be extended depending on the number of voters, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) said Wednesday.

“We start at 6 o’clock in the morning and end at 7 (p.m.), however, at 7 o’clock if there are still voters outside the polling place… we will still continue with the voting,” Comelec Commissioner Marlon Casquejo told the House committee on suffrage and electoral reforms.

“We do not expect that it will end at 7 o’clock, it will continue until such time all those inside or within 30 meters will be catered. We have procedures on that,” he added.

Meanwhile, Comelec on Wednesday also said that candidates in the 2022 national and local elections may be allowed to do limited in-person campaigning amid the easing of the lockdown restrictions due to decreasing COVID-19 cases.
