As promised, I have called personally the Commission on Elections of Marikina City to confirm the registration for SK and Barangay Election this coming October 2010. Please note that the registration for Sangguniang Kabataan or SK already started last August 4, 2010 and will run until Sunday, August 15 2010 only.
As to the confirmation if the election for SK is pushing through this October, COMELEC Marikina said there’s still no official announcement from COMELEC National about that. I heard there are opposing stands from Congressmen about the conduct of the barangay election this year.
All youth ages 15 to 17 years old are qualified to register. Those who will turn 15 during the election date, October, are also qualified to register Requirements are as follows:
- Birth certificate
- Baptismal certificate
- identification card
In the absence of the said requirements, applicants whose parents are registered voters in the city or barangay they are registering in may register provided they are accompanied by said parents.
For questions, you mall call COMELEC Marikina at 646-1665.
