Comelec Rolls Out Facebook Group to Answer Registration FAQs

Got questions about the upcoming Voters' Registration? Ask COMELEC can help with that!

With the current administration’s term being down to only two more years, the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) is preparing for another round of Voters’ Registration for those who are now 18 years old and above. The registration for the 2022 elections has been postponed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but COMELEC Spokesperson James Jimenez has announced that it will finally push through on July 1, Wednesday.

However, COMELEC will be working on a skeletal force which means there will only be a limited number of staff that can man their hotline to answer the public’s questions. Which is why, the commission has decided to launch the Ask COMELEC Facebook group.

The group, which is set to public, aims to answer questions ranging from the process for the upcoming registration to voting-related issues such as change of district or province. (Read: The My Pope Guide to Responsible Voting)

As of writing, questions on the registration process for those with no valid IDs and transfer of precinct have been asked. Four admins have been assigned to answer the questions posted in the group—the admins of the COMELEC Facebook page, COMELEC Director for Education and Information, the Assistant Director, and the RadyoCOMELEC page.

Questions are answered based on the availability of the admins and any question not usually asked will be redirected to its respective office of concern. (Read: WHO beefs up fight against fake news with new Facebook Messenger chatbot)
