BANGUED, Abra, (PIA) — The Commission on Election in Abra is now open for registration, record validation, and updating of registration record to all voters.

According to Atty. Mae Richelle Belmes, Provincial Election Supervisor, the registration and validation started last May 6, 2014 and will end up on October 31, 2015.

In an interview with the local media here, Belmes urged all voters in the province to visit the COMELEC office or their respective municipal election office for further information.

Belmes also announced that all voters especially new voters can start to register as early as now to avoid the influx of registrants during the last hour.

Aside from registration and validation, Belmes said that COMELEC is also open for reactivation of voters who have been removed from the voters’ list and biometric capturing as well.

She explained that every voter must undergo biometric capturing despite having registered otherwise they will not be counted as official voters in the 2016 elections. She said that this is a requirement in the release of the voters ID.

Belmes emphasized the need for the voter to personally go to the election office for identity verification during the registration.

She added that an Election Regulatory Board (ERB) hearing will still take place to determine and approve who will officially vote and who will not vote in the 2016 elections.

Belmes informed the public that COMELEC offices are open from Sundays to Thursdays and that they also provide an off-site registration in the barangays during Fridays.

Last May 5, the COMELEC Abra started the COMELEC Caravan in the province which started with a motorcade around the Bangued Town Proper . It went around the different municipalities during the succeeding days. (MTBB/Ginalyn Brioso – PIA CAR, Abra)

  2. I-advertise koma ti COMELEC no manu ti pagbaybayad ti maysa nga kandidato (manipud Gob agingga ti Barangay Kapitan) tanon umado ti mapan agpa-rehistro. Isu pay nga maibingay ti kurakoten dagitoy mangabak.

  3. Go and register voters and bear in mind that you can’t be forced to vote if no decent candidate yet to run on the coming election.
