COTABATO CITY- The Commission on Elections (Comelec) here reminded anew registered voters that they cannot vote in any Philippine elections unless they have biometric records with the poll body.Speaking over DXMS Radyo BidaLawyer Michael Ignes, city election officer, said about 20,000 registered voters have no biometric records and this simply means they cannot vote come election time.Some of them have been delisted or remove from the official voters's list of the Comelec, he added. We advise our voters the Comelec office to activate records and submit biometrics, otherwise their names will be deleted after the October 2015 deadline, Ignes said.Registered voters whofailed to vote in the last two elections are deemed deactivated and must re-register to qualify in the elections.Ignes said voters coming to the poll body to re-validate registration by October would mean longer queue or may end up no re-validating their voters' records.
