We have no room for excuses now. If you did not vote last May 13 elections because you weren’t able to register, the universe is giving you an early chance to practice your right for the upcoming elections in your lifetime, especially the next national one in 2022.
Through a tweet, COMELEC (Commission on Elections) spokesman James Jimenez announced that the poll body will open for voter’s registration starting today, Aug. 1 to Sept. 30. Anyone who wants to have their name registered can come in any day of the week except Sundays in all COMELEC field offices, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. They’re eyeing for stations in malls too, but they have yet to reveal the details about that.
ATTN: #VoterReg2019 starts on 1 August 2019. All @COMELEC field offices; all applications: all week except Sundays. Yes, there will be satellite registrations in malls – please stay tuned for announcements on satellite registration locations. #MagparehistroKa
