“We want to have mall registration again as a form of satellite registration, which happens on weekends, as they can really attract people,” Comelec Spokesman James Jimenez said in a forum Sunday, May 23.
“It attracts people because its more convenient. While they are there, they can see the registration activities and will be enticed to apply,” he added.
“As of now, our satellite registration activities are held in markets, offices, recreation halls of villages,” said Jimenez.

The poll official revealed that they are already close to signing their partnerships with different mall developers so they can already start with mall registration activities.
