Barangay, SK polls listup on
MANILA, Philippines—Beginning Monday, July 22, eligible voters may begin registering for the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections scheduled for Oct. 28.
James Jimenez, the Commission on Elections spokesperson, said voters could do any of the following during the 10-day registration period from July 22 to July 31: List up for those voting for the first time; get reactivated for those who failed to vote in the last two elections; and transfer their registration for those who have moved.
“As much as possible, they should register early. We only have 10 days,” Jimenez said.
“They can also register during the weekend (July 27-28). So students and those busy with work during the week need not worry because they can still register,” he added.
Jimenez said there will be no “satellite registration” and so voters need to go to the Comelec offices in their city or municipality to register.
The Comelec offices will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., he said.
Satellite registration involves special registration centers set up outside Comelec offices.
