Comelec has announced that the suspension of voter registration will be extended to August 31, due to the rising cases of COVID-19 infections in the country.

“The suspension was previously set only until June 30 but was extended for two more months in view of the still rising number of COVID-19 cases nationwide,” says Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez in a statement posted on their official Facebook page today, June 30.

“Our field personnel continue to outfit their existing offices and procure supplies in order to be COVID-19 ready. We are continuously refining our guidelines and health and safety protocols so that we do not contribute to the further spread of the virus."
