BY CARLA GOMEZ
The Commission on Elections will decide in an en banc meeting today whether to extend the registration of voters for the October 28 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections, COMELEC Commissioner Grace Padaca said yesterday.
Provincial Elections Supervisor Jessie Suarez said it is not just the COMELEC office in Bacolod City that is being swamped by voter registrants, it is the same problem in all the towns and cities of Negros Occidental, except for Don Salvador Benedicto.
He said police assistance has been sought to ensure the peaceful and orderly registration process, especially on the last day, today.
