The Commission on Elections on Thursday announced that starting November 9, voter registration will be from Mondays to Fridays to make way for disinfection of offices on Saturdays.
“The Commission on Elections deems it necessary to revert to the weekday schedule to make way for Saturday disinfection days in all Offices of the Election Officer nationwide,” Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said in a statement.
Jimenez said the voter registration will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
However, in critical areas under localized enhanced community quarantine, Jimenez said voter registration remains suspended pursuant to Resolution No. 10674.
Jimenez also reminded the public that precautionary measures are still being strictly implemented during registration amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Wearing of face mask and face shield is mandatory, the number of people to be allowed inside the Comelec office will be limited to ensure compliance with physical distancing requirements, and applicants are encouraged to bring their own pens,” he said. — RSJ, GMA News
