Comelec accounts for new voting statistics in Sorsogon

by Bennie A. Recebido

Sorsogon Province (February 18) -- Some 2,571 voters has added to the list of Sorsogon province's new voters in preparation for the forthcoming May 2010 elections.

This figure was revealed by Provincial Election Supervisor Atty. Romeo Fortes following the latest formally recorded statistics of Commission on Elections (Comelec) here, dated January 19, 2009.

According to Fortes, they have opened anew the registration for 2010 elections December last year and they expect more registrants in the coming days.

Comelec's 4th Quarter Provincial Consolidated Progress Report for May 10, 2010 national and local elections bared that the province has now recorded about 375,308 total registered voters, however, 10% of this total number are considered deactivated voters.

It could be noted that the province has recorded a remarkable decrease of about 20 percent of its voting statistics in 2007 wherein only 282,208 from the total 352,629 voting population have actually voted. Of this voting figure, 80.2% comes from the First District while 80.4% comes from the Second District of Sorsogon.

Fortes, meanwhile, appeals to the public to register, the soonest possible time, adding also that, registered voters who have not yet submitted themselves to the data capturing machine for their biometric registration must also secure for a new registration. "The sooner to register, the better, so as to avoid cramming and overcrowding," he said.

Furthermore, Fortes said that, in order to facilitate easy transaction, he has also requested the national office to regionalize the production of voters I.D. The request, on the other hand, also asks for financial assistance so as to prepare and put into order the voting prescints for possible automated 2010 elections in Sorsogon.

Meanwhile, Comelec here conducts a continuous "cleansing operations" to prevent duplication of registrations which can be used as grounds to cheat this forthcoming elections. (PIA Sorsogon) [top]
