Current Events and Issues Affecting the Philippines

Voter registration for 2010 elections is currently ongoing

Manila, Philippines –

The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) has resumed the continuing registration of voters for the 2010 elections. Registration is open for all areas outside the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).

Schedule of registration is from December 2, 2008 to December 15, 2009 at the Office of the Election Officer (OEO) of the district/city/municipality where the applicant resides from Monday to Friday, during regular office hours at 8:00 o’clock AM to 5:00 o’clock PM. Applicants must personally appear and bring any valid ID such as Employee’s identification card (ID) with the signature of the employer or authorized representative, Postal ID, Student’s ID or library card, signed by the school authority, Senior Citizen’s ID, Driver’s license, NBI/PNP clearance, Passport, SSS/GSIS ID, Integrated Bar of the Philippine (IBP) ID, or License issued by the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC).

Everyone eligible to vote is encouraged to register so as to exercise his/her right of suffrage in the 2010 polls. Meanwhile, registered voters with no biometrics record with the COMELEC yet need not register again and only needs to be processed for the data capturing machines. During the said period, deactivated voters may also apply for reactivation.
