Voters advised to verify names with Comelec
Manila (22 March) -- The Commission on Elections (Comelec) advised on Sunday the voters to verify their registration records at local Comelec offices to avoid confusion in finding their names and precinct numbers on Election Day.
"We encourage people to visit the Comelec offices in different cities and municipalities to just verify their records," Comelec Commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal said.
He said that with seven weeks left before the May 10 elections, voters should allot some time to verify their records so as to know if they are in the Comelec watchlist or not.
The Comelec came up with the watchlist to prevent suspected double or multiple registrants from voting more than once in the country?s first automated national and local elections. (PIA-Bohol) [top]
