Unregistered Filipinos who would like to exercise their right to vote have less than a month left before voter’s registration closes.
Thankfully, malls across the country have teamed up with the Commission on Elections (Comelec) and launched satellite registration centers to help out last-minute registrants.
With this new setup, the public is provided with a more convenient way to register, as voter’s registration traffic in barangays and Comelec offices hope to be eased.
Below a list of the malls providing voter registration activities inside its commercial establishments:
In collaboration with Comelec, Ayala Malls has set up satellite voter’s registration booths on select dates in 21 malls nationwide, 13 of which are located in Metro Manila.
While most of Metro Manila malls have finished, MarQuee in Pampanga is still accepting registrants on September 27 to 30.
For Visayas and Mindanao malls, the Capitol Central is open from September 17 to 18, Central Block on September 23 to 24, and Abreeza on September 28 to 30.
For the full schedule of each mall booth and the corresponding city and district it accepts, check out Ayala Malls’ list here:
Similar to Ayala Malls, SM Malls has included voter’s registration as among the government services it offers within its establishments.
While 67 SM Supermalls nationwide are participating until September 30, mall registration is limited to residents of a certain city or district.
