Over 400 public and city government employees have availed of the offsite voter registration for the May 9, 2022 elections conducted by the Commission on Elections on Monday at the City Hall lobby.
Atty. John Paul Martin, Comelec Baguio election officer, said the agency conducts voter registration preceding every poll period.
“We opted to come and service our employees starting with the local government unit of Baguio City because we found out that at least 410 employees of this LGU are not registered voters,” Martin said.
The offsite registration aims to register not only the employees of city hall but also national line agency employees in line with campaign “Kawani dapat botante.”
“After the first offsite voter registration in City Hall, we will go to national agencies in Baguio to register their employees as an active voter, para lahat makaboto at para lahat makipili ng karapat dapat na opsiyal,” Martin said.
He also encouraged the public to visit the Comelec office and check their records if they are active voters or not.
“Palagi po nilang kinukwestyon na mabagal ang ating opisina but those are during the last days of registration. It will only take two to three minutes to process registration or reactivation,” Martin said.
All types of voter registration including new voters, transfer of record, change of status or correction of entries, and reactivation of registration will be entertained.
New registrants are required to bring their valid IDs and birth certificates while applicants for change of status and/or correction of entries should bring their marriage contracts and birth certificates.
Martin said the registration period will run until Sept. 30, 2021. – Jessa Mardy Samidan
