Hundreds trooped to the Comelec District office yesterday for the last day of voters registration.

The registration started last November 6.

Registration was reopened to prepare for the May 2018 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections based on Comelec resolution 10214, the resumption of continuing registration of voters.

The Comelec District Office has registered a total of 1,264 voters for District 1 based on figures gathered last November 20.  There were 1,103 voters for District 2.

The two District Election Officers are expecting voter registration to reach 3,000 for each district.

Zamboanga city has 226,452 registered voters for the first legislative district covering 37 barangays and 213,208 voters for the city’s second district. (Liza Jocson)
