Comelec notes high turnout
of SK registrants in Neg. Or.


The Commission on Elections in Negros Oriental yesterday reported a  high turnout in the number   registrants  aged 14 to 17,   for the Sangguniang Kabataaan elections in February next year.

Records from the provincial Comelec Office showed that during the SK registration held September 20-29 this year, 14,639 new young voters applied  for voters’ registration.

Provincial elections supervisor Eddie Aba said this is a relatively satisfying outcome considering that the total number of new SK voters is higher than that of  the existing  ones  who will be deleted from the list after having turned or will turn 18 years old on or before the February 21, 2015 SK polls. moremoremore
