SK voters’ registration open on weekends – COMELEC sets SK listing to August 6 until August 15

The Commission on Elections, in a resolution, has set the dates for Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) voters’ registration to August 6, 2010 until August 15, 2010.

COMELEC Resolution No. 9004, promulgated July 12, 2010, stressed on the value of having an “assembly of youth” in every Barangay. Called the “Katipunan ng Kabataan,” its primary objective according to Article 202, Rule XXVII of the Rules and Regulations Implementing the Local Government Code of 1991, is “to enhance the social, political, economic, cultural, intellectual, moral, moral, spiritual and physical development of the youth of the country.”

The COMELEC said any Filipino citizen who are at least fifteen (15) but below eighteen (18) years of age and are residents of the Barangay where they intend to vote for at least six (6) months, may register as members of the Katipunan ng Kabataan.

“The applications for registration as members of the Katipunan ng Kabataan shall be filed from 8:00 o’ clock in the morning to 7:00 o’ clock in the evening, at the Office of the Election Officer of the city/municipality where the applicant resides,” stated the COMELEC resolution.

The COMELEC said SK voters may register even on weekends.

Applicants must present any of the following documents when they register: A) Certificate of Live Birth, B) Baptismal Certificate, C) School Records or any other document that will establish his identity and other qualifications.

The COMELEC however clarified that Community Tax Certificates or cedulas or certification from the Barangay will not be honored. ###
