Mobile biometric voter registration proceeding in Philippines
People from three adjacent regions in the Philippines have converged on their town hall, on September 24 and 25, to register and submit their biometric data for the 2013 mid-term elections.
The municipal Local Government Unit of Lagawe is confident that they had all eligible voters registered in their system. Regional officials from the three participating barangays or administrative units, which are Jucbong, Montabiong and Abinuan, extended their help to the LGU of Lagawe and Election Commission during the registration process.
The Municipal Administrator of Lagawe, Alejandro Pahiwon, stated in a radio interview that the registration process in the three regions were the last batch to be served by mobile registration. Mobile registration was implemented to reach out in the remote areas of the three regions so that they could participate in the registration.
Ricardo Bolintao, Provincial Election Supervisor, advised that the voters who are residing in nearby-regions and in Poblacion should visit the office to take part in the biometric registration process.
The voter registration will end by October 31. Registration from October 1 through October 5 will be suspended for candidacy filings.
