Comelec confirms more than 700,000 double registrants

Manila (15 March) -- The Commission on Elections (Comelec) confirmed on Sunday that more than 700,000 voters were found to have double or multiple registration records that could trigger accusations of irregularities in the May 10, 2010 national and local elections.

The Comelec in Resolution No. 8791 said their Information and Technology Department found out about the 704, 542 voters with double or multiple registration records using algorithmic matching.

The resolution, promulgated last March 10, resolved to abate the other registration records of voters found to have double or multiple registration records according to the provisions of the Omnibus Election Code.

The Comelec also directed the Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) not to allow the voters with multiple registration records to vote in their respective precincts in the May 10 polls.

It also resolved to delete the registration records of said voters in the next Election Registration Board (ERB) hearings.

In an earlier Minute Resolution last October 20, the poll body resolved that in cases where registrants are found to be registered in two or more districts/cities municipalities, the latest registration shall prevail.

Accordingly, the voters shall be allowed to vote only in the district/city/municipality of their latest registration. (PIA-Bohol) [top]
