INFOGRAPHIC: Biometric voter registration checklist

At least 9 million of the country's 52 million registered voters still need to register for the biometrics system to be able to vote in the 2016 local and national elections, and the Commission on Elections is urging them to register in the next 17 months.

The registration period, which is also open for new voters, started Tuesday, May 6, 2014, and will last until October 31, 2015.

Under the biometrics system, voters information such as picture, fingerprint and signature are recorded on Comelec database, which is then used to purge multiple registrants from the final voters' list.

To know where one can register or have his or her biometric data taken, check the list of Comelec local offices.
