MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Monday said it recorded a “relatively high turn-out” of applicants on the first day of the resumption of voter registration.

“Based on initial assessment reports coming from Comelec Field Offices, the first day of the resumption of Voter Registration today, July 4, 2022, was peaceful and orderly, with a relatively high turn-out of applicants across the board in all regions,” said Comelec spokesperson John Rex Laudiangco in a statement.

The registration comes amid the coming barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections slated for December 5, 2022.

The Comelec urged the public to register as early as possible and avoid waiting until the last minute.
