Earlier, the poll body announced the schedule of voter registration in Robinsons Place Malolos (July 30-31), Robinsons Place Ormoc (July 17 & 24), Robinsons Place Santiago (July 30-31), and Robinsons Place Tagum (August 6-7), Robinsons Novaliches (Aug 20 & Sept 18), Robinsons Galleria Cebu (Sept 27-30), Robinsons Place Iligan (Sept 1-15), and Robinsons Place Valencia (Sept 1-30), Robinsons Place GenSan (August 2-6), Robinsons Cybergate Cebu (Sept 1, 18, 25), Robinsons Place Lipa (July 16-17, 23-24, 30-31 & Aug 6-7, 13-17), and Robinsons Otis (July 31, August 7, 14, 21 & 28), Robinsons Place Dumaguete (July 17), Robinsons Place Bacolod (Aug 20-21), Robinsons Place Manila (August 21 & 28), and Robinsons Place Imus (August 4).

The Comelec, however, said that only applications from residents of the locality where the mall is located, or from those intending to transfer their registration record to the locality, will be accommodated.

It added that there will be limited number of slots available in consideration of the prevailing mall hours and strict adherence to health protocols.

The Comelec said application forms are available for free at the booths and may also be downloaded at comelec.gov.ph, or accomplished online at irehistro.comelec.gov.ph.

“For application forms filled out via the mobile app, just present the QR code,” it said.

The Comelec also reminded voter applicants to bring at least one valid ID and their own ballpen.
