The Commission on Elections has resumed satellite voter registration and implemented a new registration schedule in areas under general community quarantine (GCQ), modified GCQ, or no quarantine classification beginning May 10.

Offices of the Election Officer (OEOs) may accept voter registration applications from Mondays to Fridays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., or in satellite registration sites on Saturdays.

Registration areas will be disinfected at the end of each working day, but OEOs are still mandated to follow the disinfection day prescribed by their local government, if any.

"Satellite registration may also be conducted during weekdays, and no registration will be held at the local Comelec office on Saturdays. However, offset registration may be conducted when the office is closed on the LGU-prescribed disinfection day," said Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez.

"As the schedule may vary per locality, the public is advised to stay tuned to the announcements of their local Comelec offices," he added.

The Comelec previously shortened the daily voter registration hours until April 4 following the rise in COVID-19 cases in the country.

Voter registration in time for the 2022 elections is until September 30, 2021. The Comelec is targeting to register seven million new and deactivated voters before the registration deadline.
