LAWYER Kathrina Trinio-Caña is set to return as the election officer of Bacolod City on July 1, 2022.

Trinio-Caña, currently an acting election officer of San Carlos City, said Tuesday, June 21, that she already received a communication from the Commission on Elections (Comelec) Central Office about their assignments.

The commission directed all regional election directors, provincial election supervisors, field officers and personnel who were reassigned during the May 9, 2022 National and Local Elections to return to the stations where they were assigned prior to the nationwide reassignment.

Lawyer Revo Sorbito, who is the acting election officer of Bacolod City, will also go back to Comelec-La Carlota City.

In its order dated June 8, 2022, Socorro Inting, acting chairperson of Comelec, said that all regional election directors and provincial election supervisors must submit to the Personnel Department their Certificate of Assumption to duty within five days from re-assumption to their official stations.

It added that all provincial election supervisors must submit a manning list to the Personnel Department, which shall bear the current station and date of assumption of all their respective personnel within 10 days from their reassumption to duty.

Trinio-Caña assumed her post as an acting election officer of San Carlos City on January 19, 2022.

She said that, for now, they are updating the voters list of San Carlos City, particularly the voters' voting history.

“This will be our basis to deactivate the registration record of those voters who failed to vote in two successive elections,” she added.

Once she returned in Bacolod City, Trinio-Caña said they will also prepare the registration record of the city’s voters for the upcoming barangay elections.
