Aside from the special registration day, COMELEC has designated a priority lane for PWDs and Senior Citizens during regular days of registration in all COMELEC offices province wide.

The deadline for registration of voters and updating of data of voters for the May 2019 local and national elections will be on September 29, 5 p.m.
