The Comelec's 'special registration' is after Father's Day, from June 21 to 23

Men will be prioritized during voter registration at Commission on Elections (Comelec) offices for three days after Father’s Day on June 20, in celebration of the occasion.

In a Facebook post, the poll body’s gender and development office said “men and boys” will be given preferential treatment from June 21 to 23 when they visit their local Comelec offices.

Local Comelec offices can accommodate voter applicants from 8 am to 5 pm, from Monday to Friday.

The Comelec made the announcement as the poll body beefs up efforts to encourage more Filipinos to participate in the 2022 elections.

As of June, the number of people eligible to cast their ballots for the 2022 polls is already 60 million, just two million shy of the Comelec’s projection.
