"(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.

The last registration for OFOV was held from December 1, 2016 to September 30, 2018 for the May 2019 elections.
