The Commission on Elections is calling on the public to register or reactivate their voter’s registration in connection with the 2020 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections and the 2022 national and local election.

Comelec Baguio Election Officer John Paul Martin reminded the public, particularly the youth and those who have been deactivated to register or reactivate their registration at the nearest Comelec offices.

Martin said that at least 30,000 voters have been deactivated in Baguio City for failure to vote in the past two elections.

Voters could visit the Comelec office to check on their status or at satellite voter registration sites.

The resumption of the continuing registration of voters for the barangay and SK election is until Sept. 30. Applications may be filed from Mondays to Saturdays including holidays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Office of the Election Officer or any satellite registration site in the locality where the registrant resides.

In Baguio City, the Comelec, in partnership with the different barangay officials set the conduct of satellite registrations for all voters including the vulnerable sector such as the youth for SK, persons with disability, senior citizens, and indigenous peoples.

Martin said that they have scheduled the offsite registrations during weekends and holidays for the benefit of residents particularly the vulnerable sectors.

On Aug. 21, during the Ninoy Aquino Day, more than 200 voters registered during the offsite registration at the Holy Ghost Extension barangay hall.

Pursuant to Comelec Resolution 10549, any Filipino citizen who is not yet a registered voter, who will be at least 15 years of age on May 11, 2020 and residing in the barangay for at least six months on or before election day is eligible to register.

Those who voted during the May 13 midterm elections need not apply.

For the SK elections, those who will be at least 15 but not more than 30 years of age on election day shall be included in the list of those who may vote for SK candidates.

All types of applications will be accepted including applications for registration, transfer of registration record, change/correction of entries, reactivation of registration record, inclusion of registration record and reinstatement of name in the list of voters. Application forms may be downloaded at comelec.gov.ph.

An express lane for persons with disabilities, senior citizens, and pregnant applicants will be provided for their convenience.

From Aug. 1 to 22, a total of 2,283 voters already registered in Baguio City.
