The 2,086 persons who registered to vote in Negros Occidental on Monday is a good start, Provincial Elections Supervisor Ian Lee Ananoria said on Tuesday, February 13.
The registrants included 1,068 males and 1,018 females, he said.
Voter registration resumed Monday and will run until September 30, except on March 28, 29 and 30 (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Black Saturday).
Ananoria said hopefully residents continue to register early so a lot will participate in the 2025 midterm elections.
He said Bacolod City had the most number of registrants at 302 on the first day.
The filing of certificates of candidacy for the 2025 midterm elections may be set in October, he said.
In Victorias City the Comelec organized a special registration for vulnerable sectors on Monday.
A total of 179 members of vulnerable sectors gathered at the Don Alejandro Acuña Yap Quiña Arts and Cultural Center for the special registration spearheaded by Victorias City Election Officer Fatima Aspan.*
