Comelec to reopen overseas voter registration in December
The Commission on Elections (Comelec) said plans to start the registration of overseas voters in December 2019 in connection with the May 2022 national and local polls.
Comelec - Office for Overseas Voting (OFOV) Director Elaiza David said the overseas voter registration period is likely to start before the end of the year.
"(Overseas voter registration will start) December 2019. OFOV’s review of guidelines and procedures (is underway). Getting ready for resumption of registration overseas," David said in a statement.
