The Commission on Elections said Saturday it would resume on May 10, the issuance of voter's certifications at its main office in Intramuros, Manila. 

A voter's certification serves as a valid identification of a Filipino voter and can be presented as valid ID in all government agencies or private offices.

Registered voters may apply for a voter's certification from Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Comelec's National Central File Division (NCFD) satellite office, located at the back of Chowking in FEMII Building, Extension Cabildo Street cor. A. Soriano Avenue, Intramuros, Manila.
