10-day registration period set for village, youth polls-A A +A
Tuesday, June 18, 2013
IN 10 days, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) is looking to register almost 2.75 million regular and youth voters for the October 28 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) polls.
Comelec spokesman James Jimenez said the poll body has already set the registration period during the last two weeks of July.
"Voter registration for the Barangay and SK elections - July 22-31," announced Jimenez in his Twitter account (@jabjimenez).
According to the poll official, they have a projected registration of 740,000 voters for the barangay elections.
On the other hand, Jimenez said they expect "more of the same" number of SK voters, or those aged 15 to under 18 before Election Day, at two million much like in 2010.
All Offices of the Election Officer (OEOs) of the district/city/municipality where the applicant resides, will be the registration centers both for barangay and SK voters.
Registration applicants for the barangay polls are asked only to present any document from among their current office, postal, student, senior citizen, SSS/GSIS, Integrated Bar of the Philippines’, as well as NBI clearance, driver’s license, passport, and Professional Regulation Commission license.
Also, SK registrants are only asked to present any of their Certificate of Live Birth, Baptismal Certificate, School Records or any other document that will establish his identity and other qualifications, except for Community Tax Certificates (cedulas) or certification from the Barangay.
