Pursuant to COMELEC Resolution No. 9853 promulgated on February 19, 2014, the deadline for the filing of voter registration-related applications for the May 2016 Elections is only until October 31, 2015.
Catbalogan COMELEC has temporarily transferred to the City Plaza to accommodate more registrants as deadline nears.
For Catbalogan City with 57 barangays divided into 350 established precincts, 60,535 are registered voters as of last election held on 2013. Out of the said number of registered voters, only 48,835 actually voted, which is only 80.67% turnout.
It is expected that this data will increase as more young people who turned legal age will now be able to vote come 2016 as well as counting the transfers and validations.
So for those who have not registered or validated their biometrics, please visit Catbalogan City Plaza from 08:00 AM to 07:00PM tomorrow, October 31, 2015 as this will be last day for registration and validation.
