COMELEC Makes Voter’s Registration Easier w/ “Register Anywhere Project”
COMELEC – The Commission on Elections launched the “Register Anywhere Project” for the voter’s registration for barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections.
To be allowed to vote during the election, you must be a registered voter under the Commission on Elections. It is the government body that heads both the local and national polls in the country.
Last May 2022, both local and national elections were held including the poll for president, vice president, and the new set of senators and house of representatives. In the local level, elections for governor, mayor, vice mayor, and councilor were held.
The next elections that are expected to be held in the country are the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections. Based on a report on Pep, COMELEC is set to open the voter’r registration again for the upcoming elections on December 9, 2022.
According to the article, COMELEC will implement the “Register Anywhere Project (RAP) so it would be easier for a lot voters to register. It will run for 10 weekends starting December 17, 2022 until January 29, 2023.
The ‘Register Anywhere Project (RAP)’ will accept voter registration in five (5) shopping malls in the National Capital Region (NCR). The poll body earlier conducted an initial internal end-to-end demonstration of RAP at Robinsons Place Manila.
The voter registration in malls will be held every Saturday and Sunday. The poll body has yet to release the list of malls where the RAP will be held. Based on the report, there are no voter registrations on December 24, 25, 31, 2022 and January 1, 2023.
Any applicant from anywhere in the country who wants to register as voter can go for the registration under RAP in NCR malls. There will be separate registrations for the residents of the city or municipality where the mall is located and the non-residents who wants to apply for registration. More updates may be posted soon.
