23,000 deactivated From May 16 polls


TAGBILARAN CITY, January 14 (PIA)—For failing to validate their registrations and not submitting themselves to biometrics data scanning by the Commission on Election authorities, some 23,659 Boholano voters have been deactivated and can’t vote this May 2016.

Bohol Election supervisor Atty Eliseo Labaria revealed this after the Comelec implements full shifting to digital elections in 2016. 

This too as the Elections Registration Board, the group tasked to go through the list of voters and finalize the name for the 2016 polls, concluded its most recent meeting last November 16.

Earlier, the Comelec opened up over a year of registrations in a bid to allow the government to harvest a comprehensive data of the country’s voters. This should also provide voters the ample time to update their registrations.
Harvesting can only be done by allowing the machine to scan a person’s biometrics, and store this at the Comelec databanks. 

Using digital technology has been helpful to speed up the process where a computer aids the voter in getting quick identifications like the Auto facial recognition and, fingerprint profiles.

But despite long span of time for verifications, the voters who were not able to visit their local comelecs to get heir biometrics. 

For this, deactivation happens.

For voters who may have their names delisted from the computerized COMELEC list, may again, they can petition the courts to grant them reinstitution proceedings, which would be opened until January 24. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
