Philippine Election 2010 Special Registration and How to Verify Online

Last week, I transfered my COMELEC Voter's registration here in Malvar, Batangas since we used to live in Cabuyao, Laguna and it will be difficult for us to travel that far.

My wife has a part time job so she will transfer hers on Saturday. We want to use our right to vote in the Philippine Election 2010, in which we believe every Filipino should do. Although some may find politics as a dirty game, I still hope to see a clean and honest election in 2010.

Anyway, COMELEC announced that there will be Special Registration especially in areas affected by the past typhoons.
Below is their official statement.

“To make up for the days wherein registration was suspended in the areas affected by the past two typhoons, the Commission deemed it necessary to conduct Sunday registration so as to give time for those who have not yet registered,” Jimenez said. “In regions not affected by the typhoon, registration is from Mondays to Saturdays”.

Therefore, Regions I, II, III, IV-A, V, CAR and NCR shall be open for registration On October 18 and 25, 2009 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. In line with this, the Commission authorized its field personnel in the said regions to render overtime services for the two remaining Sundays of October.

If you are not yet registered, you have only until October 31, 2009. I hope they will register earlier to avoid the rush.

If you have already registered and want to verify it, here is
How to Verify Online on the COMELEC's official website. I just checked mine but my precinct was still the old one. This is because the data submitted is only as June 17 2009. So if your data is incorrect, you can verify with the local COMELEC office where you are registered

Incidentally, I would like to thank Marhgil Macuha for unselfishly sharing this useful information.
