THE COMMISSION on Elections (Comelec) has approved “in principle” the idea of mall voting in the May 2016 polls.

Comelec Chair Andres Bautista said that that during the en banc meeting Tuesday, he presented the “advantages” of mall voting, based on the Comelec’s experience with the satellite offices they set up in the malls for the voters’ registration.

“We already said that one of our objectives in the 2016 elections is to enhance the voting process. We want to make the voting process more comfortable and convenient,” he said.

Bautista said the technical working group that has been formed to look into the mall voting proposal will be submitting a report by next week. Tina G. Santos
