Comelec said Thursday its mobile registration form app, which allows for a convenient way of registering for the 2022 elections, would no longer be downloadable online to prioritize its use in pilot areas nationwide.
The app will only be available through pilot areas of local Comelec offices, consisting 575 cities and municipalities in the country, Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said.
The app can still be shared by Android users via SHAREit or Bluetooth and be used even without an internet connection.
Comelec launched the mobile app on Tuesday as it aims to register 7 million new and deactivated voters in time for the 2022 elections.
Once the app has been shared, the applicant may apply for voter registration by inputting the required information. The app will then generate an encrypted QR code which the applicant will present to the local Comelec office to complete the registration process.
Applicants with internet connection may also register through iRehistro.
