MANILA — The Commission on Elections said Thursday it would hold satellite voter registration in several Metro Manila cities in the coming weeks.

The following is the schedule of satellite registration:

 Manila

Barangay 649
May 29, 2021 (Saturday)
8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Venue: Barangay Hall

 Quezon City

Barangay Fairview
May 29, 2021 (Saturday)
June 5, 2021 (Saturday)
June 9, 2021 (Wednesday)
8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Venue: Barangay Hall

 Pasay City

Barangay BJMP
May 29, 2021 (Saturday)
8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Venue: Barangay Hall

Barangay 135
May 29, 2021
8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Venue: Barangay Hall

Satellite voter registration was recently conducted in Quezon City's Barangay 649 and Barangay Fairview.

The poll body recently resumed voter registration in Metro Manila and 4 surrounding provinces, which was suspended after the government placed the areas under enhanced community quarantine beginning late March due to an uptick of COVID-19 cases.

The commission also advised the public to check the social media accounts of local Comelec offices for satellite registration schedules.

Comelec Commissioner Marlon Casquejo earlier said the poll body might not reach its target of 62-63 million registered voters for the 2022 elections when registration ends on September 30.
