I voted “yes” to House Bill No. 10261, which is identical to Senate Bill No. 2408, because I fully support the extension of the registration of voters beyond the COMELEC-fixed deadline of September 30, 2021. The extension is made more crucial and critical because the continuing registration of voters was stalled by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic even as R.A. No. 8189 on continuing registration of voters validly subsists.
