MANILA – The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) head office in Pasay City is now one of the voters' registration sites for the pilot implementation of the Register Anywhere Project (RAP) of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC).
A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was recently signed by GSIS President and General Manager Wick Veloso and Comelec Chairperson George Erwin Garcia at the GSIS Gymnasium where the RAP Team is now stationed.
“We fully support initiatives that make the services of the government convenient and accessible to our stakeholders. And RAP is definitely one of these worthwhile programs," Veloso said in a press statement Monday.
"We hope that through RAP, Filipinos who are not yet registered voters will take the first step to exercise their right to vote,” he added.
The RAP is offering services for first-time voter registrants and those who seek to apply for a transfer of registration, including transfers from overseas to local.
It also accepts applications from qualified applicants who are present or temporary residents in a locality where the RAP site is situated or are to transfer to another locality where they are permanent residents and intend to vote in the upcoming Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections in October 2023.
Applicants, who may walk in, are required to submit their application form and photocopy of one valid government-issued ID card upon presentation of the original ID and have their biometrics taken at the GSIS Gym within the scheduled dates.
The voters’ registration in GSIS head office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during weekdays until January 20. (PNA)
