Voters who did not vote in 2 successive elections must re-register

Commonwealth Election Commission executive director Julita A. Villagomez said yesterday that registered voters who failed to cast their votes both in the 2014 and 2016 elections should register again.

If voters failed to vote in two consecutive elections, they need to come in at CEC in Susupe to re-register again, Villagomez said. Otherwise, they won’t be able to vote in the upcoming Nov. 6 general election.

Villagomez said those from Tinian and Rota with the same situation can contact their CEC commissioners, who can assist them in the re-registration.

Those voters need to just bring their identification card. Villagomez said re-registration will just take a few minutes.

CEC administrative officer Kayla S. Igitol also reminded yesterday those registered voters who changed their names or those who moved to other precincts that they should go to CEC and update their information.
