BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines – More than 12,000 voters have been delisted by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Tabuk City, Kalinga for their failure to take part in the past two succeeding elections.

Reyman Solbita, city election registrar, said of the 12,134 delisted voters, 703 were dead, had transferred residences or were double registrants.

With the disenfranchisement, Tabuk’s registered voters as of September this year decreased to 54,606 from 65,548, Solbita said. 

The city’s election registration board, she said, is assessing the qualifications of voters quarterly, including new registrants and old voters whose biometric data have yet to be taken.

Solbita said the move was part of Comelec’s efforts to ensure credible elections.
