The Commission on Elections (COMELEC)’s first day of its biometrics registration was flooded with voters last week.

According to COMELEC Officer II Elma Cahilig, more than a hundred people registered on the first day alone.

The COMELEC Officer previously said that a voter can only took part in the polls if they have a biometric registration.

The biometrics, which will be the means of finger printing and photo taking, is required before one can be given a voter’s ID.

The Commission is also expecting more new voters from different areas in Malay for the coming 2016 Elections.

In line with this, COMELEC is reminding all voters not to wait till 2015 to register.

The Malay COMELEC Office is open for registrants during office hours from 8am to 5pm.

To those who wish to register, a valid ID, particularly a government issued ID, and certificate of live birth are the requirements.
