Com­mis­sion on Elec­tions (Com­elec) spokesper­son lawyer Krisna Ca­ballero said that they have listed a to­tal of three mil­lion reg­is­tered vot­ers in Re­gion 11.

In Davao City alone, Ca­ballero said that there are 950,000 reg­is­tered vot­ers ex­pected to cast their votes on the midterm elec­tion day.

Ca­ballero also said that vot­ers should look for their names ahead of time at the Com­elec of­fices to avoid prob­lems dur­ing the elec­tion day such as miss­ing names on the list.

“Ting­nan na nila ahead of time para mai­wasan na dur­ing the elec­tion day maram­ing ma­gr­ereklamo dahil wala ‘yung name sa list. Ac­tu­ally ahead of time, mga Fe­bru­ary or March 2018, naka-post na po ang mga pan­galan nila in case may mga con­cern sila,” she said in a phone in­ter­view yes­ter­day.

“Para ma-cater natin sila ahead of time at mai­wasan ang mga prob­lema dur­ing elec­tion,” she added.

Mean­while, Ca­ballero re­minded the pub­lic that the start of the elec­tion pe­riod will be on Sun­day, Jan­uary 13, which is also the start of the full im­ple­men­ta­tion of the gun ban, un­til June 12.

On the same day, se­cu­rity per­son­nel will also be de­ployed to en­sure the safety and se­cu­rity of the pub­lic.

“Ac­tu­ally, yes­ter­day we just con­ducted our co­or­di­nat­ing con­fer­ence to­gether with the head of the Philip­pine Army,” Ca­ballero said, adding that they have dis­cussed the se­cu­rity mea­sures dur­ing the elec­tion and there will be a se­ries of meet­ings to be done to make the 2019 midterm elec­tion peace­ful.
