The poll body’s latest initiative aims to raise the number of participants in the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) polls, which is expected to be held next year.

“We will be setting up satellite registration centers in every barangay to encourage more people to participate in the elections,” Comelec spokesman James Jimenez said in a statement.

The registration centers will be placed in barangay halls, public or private schools, commercial establishments, detention centers, areas with indigenous communities, and other public places within the district, city, or municipality.

It will be manned by Comelec’s city or municipal Offices of the Election Officer (OEOs).
