A total of 298 inmates have registered Tuesday during the satellite voter’s registration conducted by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) at the City Jail.

District 1 election officer Atty. Stephen Cañete said Wednesday that 257 of the 298 are male inmates while the remaining 41 are females.

Cañete said 154 of the 257 male inmates are residents of this city’s second district while the 103 others are from the first district.

Cañete said they have so far registered 70 percent of the more than 1,000 inmates at the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP)-administered ZCRC.

The registration of inmates Tuesday was witnessed by no less than Comelec Commissioner Luie Tito Guia, who is the designated Chairperson of the Comelec’s Committee on Detainee Voting.

Cañete said they will conduct another voter’s registration at the ZCRC on July 14 in a bid to register all inmates. — RGAAG
