MANILA, Philippines—The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has sought the assistance of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) disseminating information about voter registration.

The poll body, in an en banc resolution, particularly asked the DILG to help bring to the barangay level the information to all their registered voters the importance of mandatory validation of registration.


“Failure to submit for validation will result to deactivation or removal of name from the list of voters,” the Comelec resolution reads.

The Comelec also requested the DILG’s assistance in providing local government units’ transportation facilities for voter registration machines (VRMs), forms and supplies as well as Comelec personnel in the conduct of satellite registration of voters.


It can be recalled that the poll body, in a separate resolution, said that satellite registration shall be held in barangay halls, public/private schools, commercial establishments and other public places in cities/municipalities nationwide to ensure wider voter participation. Tina G. Santos
