The Commission on Election (Comelec) has launched a social media help link to make checking the status of and claiming one’s voter ID is easier.
“Voter IDs are already widely available but voters don’t know where to claim. We can help. Start–ing tomorrow, tweet @COMELEC using #VoterIDKo,” poll body spokesman James Jimenez said on his official Twitter account.
Jimenez said the commission will answer all voter’s queries, using #VoterIDKo.
A voter ID is government-issued and given full faith by commercial establishments, including banks, Jimenez added.
Further, the Comelec ex–plained that their office has tentatively scheduled April for the registration of voters, but in the “meantime, we’re helping people claim their IDs.”
Meanwhile, the Comelec had approved the recommendations of Jeannie Flororita, acting director of the poll body’s information tech–nology department for streamlining the process of printing, and de–ployment and storage of documents by concerned offices.
They would reduce costs in shipping, storage, electricity and manpower and will supplement the current digitalization of records.
