By:Emmanuel D. Taghoy

ZAMBOANGA CITY – The National Youth Commission (NYC) announces that the last day of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) or the Youth Council voters registration will be until Saturday, July 30, only.

Those who want to register must be at least 15 but not older than 30 years old on the day of elections, which will be on October 31, and a resident of the barangay for at least six months prior to the election day.

Registration has started last July 15.

Youths who will be registering may visit their local Commission on Elections (COMELEC) office from 8 a.m. to 5p.m.

Ms. Karenne Añover of NYC-9 said COMELEC offices are open daily including Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

“They must bring with them any of the identification cards such as office ID, postal ID, PWD discount ID, driver’s, SSS/GSIS ID, student ID, passport or a clearance from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI),” she said referring to the requirements needed in the registration.

“Or they can bring any valid document indicating their date of birth and current address.”

Añover said those who have already registered and voted during the May 9, 2016 national and local elections are automatic registrants for the SK elections.

She also emphasized that SK registration is free.
