“As of today the projected number of voters for 2022 stands at 65.5 million,” Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez said in a press briefing in Manila.

“Throughout the entire registration process we added to the list of voters a total of 8,187,080,” he added.

Jimenez said at the start of the registration they expected around 4 million who will turn 18-years old to register.

“As it turns out we got 4,094,614. These are the 18 to 21 years old who registered,” he said.

He said the 18- year old numbered 171,033.

But the largest group of registrants in the 18 to 21 bracket, Jimenez said, are the 21-year old registrants.

“Coming up to a total of 750,578 for males and 796,891 females,” he said.

Voter registration ended Oct. 30.
