Comelec to prioritize male registrants for 3 days as Father's Day treat

(The Freeman) - June 20, 2021 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines —  The Commission on Elections-Gender and Development Office will hold a three-day special voter registration with men to be given priority as part of the Father’s Day celebration.

The poll body said the special event will be conducted from June 21 to 23, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at all local Comelec offices.

“Men and boys will be the first in line to register for the coming May 22 elections,” it said.

The event, it said, is another move to amplify its voter registration campaign.

Previously, the Comelec also held a special registration for women to celebrate women’s month.

Moreover, the poll body is urging all qualified Filipinos to register early so they could participate in the next elections.

Voter registration runs until September 30.

Starting February 20, Filipinos have the option to go to the nearest Comelec office in their area from Tuesdays to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Mondays are reserved for the disinfection of the Comelec offices in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

To make the registration safe and convenient for the public amid the pandemic, Comelec introduced online and satellite registrations.

Registrants may submit their applications online via the iRehistro portal. Although a visit to the nearest Comelec office is still necessary for biometrics.

Recently, the Mobile Registration Form Application was also launched. The app is accessible to any smartphone and does not require internet connection.

However, it is no longer available for download online as of this time “in order to prioritize its use in the (57) pilot areas,” according to the Comelec.

The Comelec targets to register four million new voters and reactivate around three million voters, who were deactivated due to failure to vote in two consecutive elections. — Loreine Kyra Lebumfacil, CNU Comm Intern, KQD (FREEMAN)
