The Commission Elections recently promulgated Resolution No. 9899 setting the date, time and place for the filing of applications for the Sangguninag Kabataan (SK) registration for the February 21, 2015 SK elections.
Citing the resolution, Atty. Richard Alvin N. Japson, Biliran Provincial Election Supervisor informed Biliranisland.com that the schedule for the SK registration is from September 20 to 29, 2014, inclusive of Sundays, during office hours at the Offices of the Election Officers throughout the province. He said that any Filipino citizen who is at least fifteen (15) but below eighteen (18) years of age on February 21, 2015, actually residing in the barangay for at least six (6) months on election day and not otherwise disqualified by law may register on such dates by personally appearing before the offices of the Election Officer. He also clarified that those who have already registered during the 2013 SK registration need not register anew. However, those who were previously registered but will turn 18 years old on February 21, 2015 shall be deleted from the list of Katipunan ng Kabataan members. Prospective voters are requested to bring any of the following and present them before the Election Officer – Certificate of Live Birth, Baptismal Certificate, school records or any other document that will establish his identity and qualifications.
He further advise would be registrants to do away with the mañana habit of registering on the last day considering the short duration of the registration period.
