There will be no voter registration during the remaining four holidays of this year, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) said on Friday. 

The Comelec said that its offices nationwide will be closed on December 24, December 25 (Christmas Day), December 30 (Rizal Day), and December 31.

“There will be no transactions with the public, including issuance of voter’s certification, as all offices of the Commission on Elections nationwide will be closed on said day,” the poll body said in a statement. 

The last day of voter registration for this year is on December 29 and it would resume on January 4, 2021, the Comelec said. 

The poll body said that voter registration is conducted from Mondays to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., adding that Friday has been designated as “disinfection day unless the LGU (local government unit) prescribes a different disinfection day.”

“The public is reminded that anti-COVID-19 protocols are being strictly imposed in all Comelec offices,” it added.
