The Commission on Elections and Robinsons Land Corporation on 12 July 2021 will sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to set up voter registration booths in selected Robinsons Malls nationwide.
The MOA signing ceremony will be held at Xian Tian Di, Crowne Plaza Galleria Manila, Ortigas Ave. corner ADB Ave., Ortigas Center, Quezon City at 12:00 pm.
“Our aim is to give the public an accessible and efficient registration experience and provide alternative satellite registration sites by opening registration booths in malls,” COMELEC Spokesperson James Jimenez said. “We are glad to once again partner with Robinsons Land Corporation in delivering effective public service ahead of the 2022 National and Local Elections.”
The registration booths will be established in selected Robinsons Malls in the National Capital Region (NCR), Central Luzon, North Luzon, South Luzon, Central Visayas, Western Visayas, Eastern Visayas and Mindanao.
“Once the malls have been identified and schedules finalized, applicants will be able to submit their forms and documentary requirements and have their biometrics data taken in the comfort and convenience of mall spaces,” Jimenez added.
In consideration of mall hours, the satellite registration sites in malls will accept a limited number of applicants daily. Only applications from residents of the locality, or from those intending to transfer their registration record to the locality, will be accommodated.
“We will release the final list of mall registration schedule once available. But the public may contact their local COMELEC office directly to inquire about schedules specific to their city or municipality,” Jimenez said.
Meanwhile, applicants who have a QR code from the mobile application will be entertained if the locality where the mall is located is among the pilot areas for the app.
From August to September 2019, COMELEC and Robinsons also installed mall registration booths for the deferred 2020 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Elections.
