MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) expects 71 million registered voters for the 2025 midterm elections, poll body chairman George Erwin Garcia said on Thursday.
As of now, Garcia said Comelec recorded around 68 million voters, but the poll body is expecting an increase of three million.
“Ngayon po 68 million, ang aming projection by 2025, about 71 million voters po tayo,” Garcia said in a press briefing at Comelec headquarters in Manila.
