Comelec allots P10M for voters’ registration gear
The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has earmarked P10 million for the purchase of voter registration machines (VRM) and peripherals in anticipation of more voters signing up for the coming polls.
In an invitation to bid posted on the poll body’s website, the bids and awards committee (BAC) said the allocation was intended for the continuing registration of voters.
The Comelec is eyeing the purchase of 130 units each of desktop computers, uninterruptible power supply units, web cameras, signature pads and finger print scanners.
“The Comelec, through its BAC, invites interested bidders to apply for eligibility and to bid for the supply and delivery of VRMs and peripherals,” part of the bid invitation read.
