COMELEC urges voters to validate registration early

by Pilar S. Mabaquiao

SAN JOSE, Antique, Jan 16 (PIA) -- The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) urged registered voters to validate their registration early to avoid the rush as Election 2013 nears.

“COMELEC has to validate thousands of registered voters, so it is much better if they visit COMELEC office earlier to avoid inconvenience,” said Atty. Hazel L. Alconga, Election Officer III of San Jose, Antique.

"In San Jose alone," Alconga said, "we need to validate more than 12,000 voters for them to be qualified to vote come 2013."

The province has more than 289,000 registered voters; the town of Sibalom and San Jose are among the vote-rich municipalities.

Those who need to be validated are voters who were who have not had computerized picture-taking, and have not provided the COMELEC with specimen signature and biometric finger prints.

She added that the said voters need to undergo validation, even if they voted in the recent national election.

"We call on barangay officials to help in this advocacy so that the voice of their constituents will be heard during election time,” she said.

Voters should bring their valid ID for proper identification during the process of validation.

Voters who have been de-activated for not having voted for the past two elections may apply for re-activation.

Registration for unregistered but qualified voters is ongoing. (JCM/PSM/PIA6 Antique)
