Voters' registration nationwide has resumed Wednesday, August 1, Commission on Elections spokesperson James Jimenez said.
In a statement, Jimenez said those who are at least 18 years old on or before the May 13, 2012 elections may apply for registration at the Office of the Election Office in their district, city, or municipality. 
To be able to register, the Comelec said a voter must bring any of the following documents:
  • Employees identification card (ID) with the signature of the employer or authorized representative;
  • Postal ID;
  • Students ID or library card, signed by the school authority;
  • Senior Citizens ID;
  • Drivers license;
  • NBI/PNP clearance;
  • Passport;
  • Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) ID;
  • License issued by the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC); and
  • Any other valid ID.
Jimenez said Comelec offices are open from Monday to Saturday from 8 am to 5 pm.  Registration will end on October 31, 2012.
He said applications for transfer of registration, correction of entry and validation of registration records will also be accepted at the poll body offices. 
The Comelec earlier halted voters' registration nationwide to give way to the conduct of registration in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) from July 9 to 18, 2012. — Kimberly Jane Tan/RSJ, GMA News
