The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Olongapo is continuously accepting applications for new voters. Would-be registrants are encouraged, however, not to wait for the October 31, 2009 deadline to avoid unforeseen circumstances that may result in their failure to register.

“Ang pagboto ay pribelihong dapat tugunan ng mamamayang may malasakit sa bayan,” said Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. who has ordered a massive information campaign to enable residents to know of the ongoing voters’ registration.

For first time registrants, personal appearance at the COMELEC office is required and a valid ID with photo and the present address is reflected.

Individuals who have moved to Olongapo may also apply to have records updated to enable them to vote in the city in the coming elections. This is done to prevent incidents of double registration. According to the COMELEC, “If you think that your previous registration is still active, consult with your Election Officer (EO). If you find out that you have a double registration, execute an affidavit at the EO’s office where you are previously registered stating your desire to cancel your registration there.”

“We are also accepting applications for reactivation of voting records, correction of entries at change of status sa kanilang voting records. Magdala po lamang ng mga supporting documents tulad ng Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate o Court Decision,” said Atty. Lydia Florentino Pangilinan, Provincial Elections Supervisor and Acting Elections Officer ng COMELEC- Olongapo.

The continuing voters’ registration is by virtue of Comelec Resolution No. 8514 which was later amended by Comelec Resolution No. 8585 to extend the registration period that includes Saturdays to accommodate student youths.

For more information and questions, visit the COMELEC office located at the City Hall Complex. The COMELEC office is open every Mondays through Saturdays at the following hours: 8:00 am to 12:00 nn and 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm.
