MANILA, Philippines – With less than 20 days before the deadline of voters’ registration on October 31, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) urged residents of Makati City District 1 to avail of the special satellite registration in one of the city’s malls, an official said.

Comelec Makati District 1 assistant election officer Florant Dominic Recel told INQUIRER.net that eligible voters, especially new voters, could file their registration during the last three Fridays and Saturdays of the month – October 16-17, 23-24 and 30-31 between 10 a.m. to 6p.m. at Glorietta 4 in Ayala Center.

“All eligible voters of the first district of Makati who find it difficult to enlist in our local election office on weekdays can proceed to the satellite registration center located beside Timezone in Glorietta 4. The satellite registration center can accommodate 250 voters in a day,” said Recel.

Recel added that the satellite registration would be held simultaneously with the one for the regular voters at the District 1 election office at the Makati Fire Station.

Each enlistment center will have one data capturing machine to store biometrics information such as digital photo, signature, and fingerprints of at least 250 registrants in a day.

During the last quarterly hearing of the Election Registration Board, Makati district 1 has a total of 168 459 voters including those who reside in the villages of Pio del Pilar, Bangkal, San Isidro, Palanan, San Antonio, Sta. Cruz, La Paz, Carmona, Valenzuela, San Lorenzo, Magallanes, Dasmarinas, Forbes Park, Bel-Air and Poblacion.

In a separate interview, Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) Makati coordinator Arwin Serrano added that eligible voters who have difficulty in enlisting during weekdays should take advantage of the satellite registration at the mall to prevent long queues when the deadline nears.

“This project eases the difficulty on the part of our constituents who are busy to enlist during weekdays due to school or work. Aside from a huge area where they can line up, the center can process applications of 20-30 persons simultaneously. We encourage them to register because this is the first step to vote their choice leaders in 2010,” said Serrano.

Any person who is 18 years old and has been a residence of the Philippines for at least a year can register for the 2010 elections. Requirements include valid school and government IDs, except barangay-issued IDs and cedulas or residence certificates, said Recel.

For queries or additional information, interested parties can call the Makati District 1 office at (02) 8437268.
