The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) will be releasing voter’s IDs for the town of Malay.
According to Malay COMELEC Officer II, Elma Cahilig, these are the voter’s IDs which have not been claimed since 2011. This includes the IDs of registered voters from 2007 until 2009.
Cahilig said the COMELEC will post the list of voter’s IDs which have not been claimed at public places.
Included in those places are outside the office of the COMELEC and at the Village Hall of Malay.
She also added that the mentioned list is ready to be sent for posting at Village Halls and other public places.
Furthermore, she reminded the public that these IDs are old voter’s IDs not yet the new IDs for the newly registered voters.
Cahilig advised the public to look at the lists to be posted and if their name is found, they should go to the office of the COMELEC Malay to claim their respective ID.
For those who cannot personally claim their ID, an authorized representative or relative should be sent together with a valid ID of the claimant to the COMELEC.
Meanwhile, COMELEC Spokesperson James Jimenez explained that the voter’s ID is a big help to voters since this is recognized by all government offices including banks in all legal transactions.
