There will also be a special satellite registration for the youth on July 12, while for senior citizens, women and persons with disability (PWD) is on July 13.

Aside from NCR, there will also be satellite registration in Region 4.

The schedule of the satellite registration may be viewed at the official Facebook page of Comelec.

The Comelec earlier asked all Office of Election Officers (OEOs) to conduct satellite registration activities.

The poll body said this is “to ensure wider voter participation, the OEO shall conduct satellite registration of voters within the city/municipality, during the first week of registration period.” Satellite registration activities may be held in barangay halls/centers; public and private schools and universities; malls and commercial establishments; and other public and convenient places.

The Comelec said there must be exclusive special satellite registration activities for the youth, senior citizens, women, PWDs, and members of the Indigenous People or Indigenous Cultural Communities.

The poll body has set the voter registration for the Dec 5, 2022 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections from July 4 to 23.
