She said on February 17, they conducted the satellite registration in Barangay Pahanocoy and they accepted a total of 554 new applicants, another 412 applications in SM Mall satellite registration on February 23, and 533 applicants in Barangay Banago on February 24.

Trinio-Caña said they also implemented the Register Anywhere Program (RAP) and they recorded a total of 10 applicants and most of them are from Murcia, Bago and Silay cities, and Capiz.

“We have ongoing satellite registration and those who are not registered yet just visit the official website of Comelec to check the schedule of the registration,” she said.

She added the Comelec office is also open from Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., to accommodate the applicants.

Registrants should bring their valid government identification cards (ID) with pictures and signatures, as well as an original and photocopy of their birth certificate.
