Easy Voter’s Registration

February 25, 2009

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) promises voter-registrants that the registration process will be hassle free.

First, the Comelec extended the registration days until Saturdays and during holidays. To give time for the Job swamped registrants to register.

Next, some Comelec branches, like in Caloocan,  have developed a faster registration process for  the elederly, pregnant women, and disabled registrants.  

Lastly, Comelec aslo extended the registration period, from October 31, 2009 until December 15, 2009.  A move that would likely make last minute registrants happy. Coz instead of going to comelec on October 29, 30, and 31… they’d flock comelec offices on December 13, 14 and 15. And then complain of the slow processing of the comelec. That’s the pinoy voter. 😀
