Voter registration for 2019 polls resumes on July 2

MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is set to resume voter registration for the May 13, 2019 midterm elections.

The Comelec scheduled the new round of voter registration from July 2 to September 29, 2018, as stated in Comelec Resolution No. 10392 which was released on Tuesday, June 19.

In a statement, Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez said the registration drive will happen nationwide, "with the exception of Marawi City, Lanao del Sur, in light of the current situation in the area."

Marawi City is still undergoing rehabilitation following 5 months of clashes between government troops and terrorists in 2017.

Local Comelec offices will be open Mondays to Saturdays (including holidays) from 8 am to 5 pm for the voters' registration, said the poll body. 

Qualified voters may apply for new registration, transfer and/or reactivation of voter records, correction of entries, or inclusion or reinstatement of records in the voters' list.

The Comelec also said it will conduct satellite or off-site registrations in barangays, plazas, schools, and other public places during the registration period, with preference given to members of vulnerable sectors, such as indigenous peoples, senior citizens, and pregnant women. – Rappler.com
