MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Elections (Comelec) issued last-minute reminders for deadline beaters as voter registration is set to end on Saturday, September 29.

Tatlong araw na lang, tapos na ang #VoterReg2018. Kung isa ka sa mga deadline beaters, ito ang 3 praktikal na paalala:
3. Siguraduhing dumating nang maaga at kumpleto ang requirements.
2. Magbaon ng chill. Mahaba na ang pila. Siyempre, last 3 days na eh.
1. Worth it 'yan. Push mo.
(Three days to go, and #VoterReg2018 is over. If you are among the deadline beaters, here are 3 practical reminders:
3. Make sure to come early and with complete requirements
2. Bring some chill. The lines are now long. Of course, it's the last 3 days.

Jimenez earlier urged Filipinos to register as voters if they haven't, "to help bring about actual change."
"Press pause on that Twitter argument you're having. That's not very likely to change anything," Jimenez said. "Being a registered voter means you're in a position to help bring about actual change." – Rappler.com
