November 3, 2009

From Comelec:

“Registered voters who haven’t had their biometrics captured need not panic. They can still vote in 2010.”

COMELEC spokesman James Jimenez issued this clarification Wednesday after news items came out saying that voters whose biometrics were not captured during their registration will not be allowed to cast their vote.

Jimenez explained that of the more than 45 million registered voters nationwide, more than half have yet to submit their biometrics using the poll body’s data capturing machines.
