How do I register for the 2010 Elections?

This is the question that I keep on asking my self since last year. Actually, I’ve been asking this question ever since the day I turned 18 so it’s been 6 years now and I still haven’t got my answer hahaha!

Ok. I’m not getting any younger so I really must do something for my country (YES!) and to be part of the voting public hahaha! J

Qualified to register to vote are all Filipino citizens, a resident of the Philippines for at least a year or a first time voter who will turn 18 on or before the May 2010 elections.

All qualified citizen may register to the nearest Office of the Election Officer (OEO) at the local COMELEC (Commission on Elections) office near your area. Registration is open from Monday to Saturday, 8AM – 5PM.

Application forms for Registration (CEF-1A) are available at the Office of the Election Officer, or may be downloaded from the COMELEC website.

If you will apply using a downloaded form, print three copies and fill it up, but don’t sign and put your thumb mark yet. You should only sign and thumb mark it in the presence of the EO to make your application form valid.

You have to appear personally at the OEO or any of the satellite registration venues and give your full name, exact address (including your house number, street name, area, district, purok or sitio, and barangay, or a brief description of your residence, when necessary) and present any of your current IDs that has your picture and signature (school, library or employee ID with picture, driver’s license, NBI or Police clearance, Postal ID or passport). Community Tax Certificates (cedula) or certifications or IDs issued by barangay officials will not be accepted.

Present any of your current ID with picture and signature such as school, library or employee ID with picture, driver’s license, NBI or Police clearance, Postal ID or passport). Community Tax Certificates (cedula) or certifications or IDs issued by barangay officials will not be accepted.
