MANILA – The Office for Overseas Voting (OFOV) of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) suspended its operations starting noon on Wednesday due to bad weather.
In a Facebook post, the OFOV decided to suspend its overseas voting registration operations at the OFOV Registration Center at the Comelec main office in Intramuros, Manila, and five Local Field Registration Centers (LFRCs) in different areas in Metro Manila due to the inclement weather.
The LFRCs are located at the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) in Mandaluyong City; Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Aseana, Parañaque City, DFA - SM Manila; DFA - Robinson's Galleria; Quezon City and Marina - SM Manila.
These centers are accepting applications from Mondays to Fridays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Filipinos who will be overseas from April 10 to May 9, 2022 may register as overseas voters. Those who will be at least 18 years of age by election day, but will not be in the Philippines to vote for the 1-month period before the 2022 elections, are eligible to register.
The last day for the filing of applications for registration as overseas voters is on September 30.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Typhoon Fabian will continue to enhance the southwest monsoon, bringing rains over most parts of Luzon.
Moderate to heavy rains will be experienced over Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Bataan, Tarlac, Pampanga, Bulacan, Metro Manila, and other areas. (PNA)
