AFTER introducing early June 2021 a mobile application that is designed to make the voter application process more accessible, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) is set to launch this project on Tuesday, June 15, 2021, in Tagum City, Davao del Norte.
The mobile application was rolled out in pilot areas and is currently implemented in more than 500 cities and municipalities, including Cebu City.
Comelec Commissioner Marlon Casquejo, who conceptualized the project, said that the launch of the mobile application is “very timely in the face of mobility restrictions brought about by Covid-19.”
In a statement, Comelec said it can be accessed using any smartphone even when offline.
“This will save time, effort, and money that will otherwise be spent on going to a computer shop to download and print the form, or getting the form at the local Comelec to fill it out manually,” Casquejo said.
