Registrants for 2022 polls reach 1 million

Sheila Crisostomo (The Philippine Star) - January 19, 2021 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has recorded over one million registrants for the 2022 presidential polls.

Comelec data showed that 1,050,793 people have signed up since the voter registration resumed on Sept. 1 last year.

The poll body said it expects the number of registrants to reach four million.

The Comelec is expecting one million old voters to apply for re-activation of registration.

Under Comelec regulation, voters who failed to vote for two consecutive elections are automatically removed from the list.

The poll body said the low voter registration turnout was expected amid quarantine restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The voter registration will run until Sept. 30.
