The Commission on Elections said Wednesday it would accept voter registrations on Saturdays starting this February to encourage more Filipinos to sign up for the 2022 polls.

Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon announced the development on Twitter, saying Filipinos working on weekdays no longer have an excuse.

"No excuses, register na!" she said.

Earlier this week, the Comelec said it was behind its target to sign up four million new voters for the 2022 vote.

On weekdays, the Comelec accepts registrations from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Frontliners in the COVID-19 pandemic--health workers and law enforcers--have also been allowed to use priority lanes in local Comelec offices for voter registration.
