Voter RegistrationNow aside from Voter Registration, those who are already registered but needs to update/provide their biometrics (voter’s photograph, fingerprints and signature) may also go to these listed malls to complete their registration.

Before doing so, check first if your name is on this list City/Municipal List of Voters Without Biometrics.

Deadline to accomplish biometrics will be until October 31, 2015. In line with COMELEC’s “No Bio No Boto”  campaign, failure to update biometrics will deactivate one’s registration and thus will not be allowed to vote in May 2016.
