“Yes, 3M [3 million] may even be a very conservative number,” he added when asked if he thinks the 3 million new voters target is achievable by the end of September.

The voter registration for the 2025 national and local elections officially opened on February 12 and will run until September 30.

The Comelec said the country currently has 68 million registered voters.
