In a media interview, Garcia said the voter registration will be from the last week of November this year until the last week of May 2023.

The Comelec resumed the registration of voters after President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. signed into law the bill suspending the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections, initially scheduled for December 2022.

The Comelec said it is looking into reactivating 5 million more regular and youth voters by the end of the registration program.
