COMELEC holds seminars in schools

Commission on Elections holds seminars in schools to encourage students to take part in the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections this year.

“It is our hope that we will be able to reach even the remotest island municipalities and the farthest barangay in the fulfillment of our mandate to educate and inform in order to engender a more active and engaged Filipino electorate,” COMELEC said.

The election is scheduled in October 2023.

The commission, in partnership with the Department of Education, identified 30 schools to visit in various provinces from January 9-13.

The seminar discussed the importance of being a voter, the step-by-step process of voter registration, the qualifications and duties of elected officials in the Barangay and SK, and the fight against disinformation in elections, among others.

The Comelec said it also held satellite registration in the schools.

The voters registration for Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Election(BSKE) will last until January 31, 2023.
