MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) urged voters on Sunday to register for the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections slated for December 5, 2022.

The registration period is from July 4 to 23, Mondays to Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Dahil po maikli lang ang panahon ng pagrehistro para makatupad ang COMELEC sa mga batas at alituntunin ng halalan, hinihiling namin na huwag ng hintayin ang mga huling araw ng pagpapatala para makaseguro ang pagrehistro,” Comelec acting spokesperson John Rex Laudiangco said in a statement.

(Because the registration period is just short, in compliance with laws and election guidelines, we hope registrants will not wait for the last day of listing to ensure their registration.)

Laudiangco told registrants to fill up the application forms properly and prepare proof of identity before going to their office.
