voter registration in Bacolod City

The Commission on Elections is hoping to register 200,000 new voters in Negros Occidental and Bacolod City for the midterm elections in 2025, Provincial Election Officer Ian Lee Ananoria said Thursday, February 15.

The first three days of registration in the province has been good and he hopes it continues, Ananoria said.

He said there were 4,593 voter registration applicants in the first three days, with 2,334 males and 2,259 females.

There were 2,089 who registered on Monday, 1,374 on Tuesday and 1,130 of Wednesday.

Ananoria said he hopes it will continue at 2,000 registrants a day.

Voter registration resumed Monday and will run until September 30, except on March 28, 29 and 30 (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Black Saturday).

Aside from the ongoing registration at COMELEC offices provincewide, the Register Anywhere Program (RAP) is also ongoing at SM City Bacolod, he said.

The Comelec is aiming for 3 million new voters nationwide.

A public is also invited to a registration fair to be attended by election officers from all over Negros Occidental at SM City Bacolod on February 23, Ananoria said.*
