COMMISSION on Elections (Comelec) chairman Jose Andres Bautista admitted that he has no biometrics but intends to have it taken soon.

In a press briefing during the end-to-end demonstration of the hybrid election system, Precinct Automated Tallying System in Bacoor, Cavite on Saturday, the Bautista said that he learned about not having biometrics after receiving a notice from their barangay.

“’Yung aming barangay chairman nagpadala ng sulat para magpa-biometrics [ako],” Bautista said.

Bautista said he will have his biometrics taken on July 19, at the Comelec satellite office in Quezon City.

“Ako po ay registrado sa 4th district ng Quezon City bumoboto ako sa St. Paul school. Tiningnan ko ang schedule ng Ayala, I think para sa 4th district meron sila sa Trinoma sa July 19,” he said.

Bautista added, “Ang gusto ko konting media events para lang mapaalala sa ating mga botante ang kahalagahan ng biometrics…parang kulang pa din sa kaalaman, so we are trying to raise the awareness.” (FP/Sunnex)
