The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) reminded the youth who registered and voted during the 2010 Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Elections should register anew so that they may be able to vote in the May 13, 2013 national and local elections.
“The COMELEC reminds SK voters during the 2010 elections to register anew so that they can vote in the next year’s elections”, said COMELEC spokesman James Jimenez, who noted a prevailing misconception among SK members on the registration process.
“We call the leadership of Sangguniang Kabataan Federations nationwide and the National Youth Commission (NYC) to help us in encouraging the youth, especially the SK voters of 2010, to register”, said Jimenez.
He said that voters’ registration is open at COMELEC offices until October 31, 2012, Mondays to Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Registrants need only to bring a valid ID when they register. (Source: COMELEC Education and Information Department)
