SM Malls in Marilao, San Jose Del Monte, Pulilan and Baliwag joined the Commission on Elections' (Comelec's) synchronized registration to speed up application and accommodate more voter applications days before the September 30 registration deadline. Gladiz May Latiza, public relations manager of SM City Marilao on Saturday said the opening of satellite Comelec Voter Registration (CVR) centers at the SM Supermalls will not only provide voters with more registration venues, but will also give the public a safer, more convenient option amidst the prevailing pandemic. To ensure health protocols are observed in satellite registration sites, Comelec will cater to at least 200 voter applicants a day in SM City Marilao and SM Center Pulilan, and 150 applicants a day for SM Malls in Baliwag and San Jose Del Monte. The Comelec is encouraging all qualified voters to register and participate in the upcoming 2022 national and local elections. Registration is open to new voters, transfer applications from outside or within the city or town, reactivation, correction of entry by virtue of marriage or misspelled name wherein they may also download and accomplish application forms and health declaration cards from the Comelec website to affix their signatures and have their biometrics captured when they go to the registration venue. SM Supermalls has 76 satellite CVR centers nationwide and will run until September 30.
