By Ninfa B Quirante

Catbalogan City (February 21) -- The Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Samar has started weeding out voters in preparation for a cleaner slate come elections in 2010.

As of January 2009 after the Electoral Registration Board meeting, the ERB has registered some 45, 036 in the city of Catbalogan in some 349 voting precincts.

According to COMELEC Catbalogan, some 8, 604 names were erased due to death and failure to vote in two successive elections.

Some of these voters who have failed to vote twice may also consider reactivation or transfer, Comelec added.

In Calbayog City, Mr. Salvador Cruz, Comelec Officer here said that voters could total to a 100 thousand.

In a radio interview done by DYOG Calbayog City, Cruz said that based on the barangay elections in October 29, 2007, Calbayog City had some 102 thousand voters then.

However, some 14 thousand have failed to vote twice, 397 of them have died and some 210 transferred.

Presently, with all deductions some 87 thousand are now left in the voters list.
