Voter Registration Suspended Until August 31
The Commission on Elections has extended the suspension of voter registration up to August 31, 2020.
The resumption of the continuing system of voter registration, including satellite registration, will remain suspended in all COMELEC offices nationwide.
“The suspension was previously set only until June 30 but was extended for two more months in view of the still rising number of COVID-19 cases nationwide,” COMELEC Spokesperson James Jimenez said.
“Our field personnel continue to outfit their existing offices and procure supplies in order to be COVID-19 ready. We are continuously refining our guidelines and health safety protocols so that we do not contribute to the further spread of the virus,” Jimenez added.
On March 9, all COMELEC offices nationwide were directed to suspend voter registration until March 31. Subsequent extensions of the suspension were set for April 30 and June 30.— Source: comelec.gov.ph
