The Comelec on Wednesday said it is opening up voter registration booths in select Robinsons Malls nationwide to make registration more accessible to the public ahead of the 2022 elections.

The commission is set to sign a memorandum of agreement with Robinsons Land Corp on July 12.

"Our aim is to give the public an accessible and efficient registration experience and provide alternative satellite registration sites by opening registration booths in malls," said Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez.

"Once the malls have been identified and schedules finalized, applicants will be able to submit their forms and documentary requirements and have their biometrics data taken in the comfort and convenience of mall spaces," he added.

A limited number of applicants will be accommodated in satellite registration sites in malls daily. Only applications from residents of the locality, or from those intending to transfer their registration to their new residence, will be accepted.

Applicants who already have a QR code from the Comelec mobile registration application will be accommodated if the locality where the mall is located is among the pilot areas for the app.

Comelec is aiming to register 7 million new and deactivate voters in time for the 2022 elections.
