The Election Officer shall adopt a system of processing applications for registration to speed up the registration process, minimize queuing and avoid inconvenience.

The filing of applications for registration at the Office of the Election Officer shall proceed as follows:

a) The applicant shall personally appear before the Interviewer, declare that he is applying for registration, and, if he has a pre-accomplished form, submit the form, together with any of the following:

1. Current employee's identification card (ID) with his picture and signature and the signature of the employer or authorized representative;

2. Student's ID or library card with picture and signed by the school authority

3. Postal ID;

4. Senior Citizen's ID

5. Driver's license

6. NBI/PNP clearance with picture; or

With the assignment of the Voters Identification Number (VIN) under R.A. 8189, the precinct numbering based on the current CVL becomes incompatible with the new software; hence, the need to assign voter's in precincts established/numbered in accordance with the precinct mapping results.

For this purpose, the Election Officer concerned shall consecutively number each Data-Capture Workstation in the city/municipality beginning with "01". In case there is only one data capture machine in the city/municipality, the third part of the application number code is fixed at "01".

In cities/municipalities comprising two or more legislative districts or two or more Election Registration Boards, the numbering of DCMs allocated to the city/municipality shall start with the first legislative district, then the second, and so on.

f) The DCS Operator shall proceed to capture the demographic and biometric data of the applicant as provided for in the Data Capture Workstation User's Guide;

REGISTRATION PROCEDURES IN CITIES/MUNICIPALITIES WITHOUT DATA CAPTURE MACHINES

Section 34. Procedures in the filing of applications for registration, transfer of registration records, change of name, correction of entry, reactivation of registration records, deactivation and cancellation of registration records. - In cities/municipalities where there are no data-capture machines, there will be no validation, but there will be registration and filing of applications for transfer of registration records, change of name, correction of entry, reactivation of registration records, deactivation of registration records and cancellation of registration.

The period of registration as well as the filing of applications for transfer of registration records, change of name, correction of entry, reactivation, deactivation and cancellation of registration records shall be in accordance with Sections 9 (b), 17 (b) and 30 (b) of this Resolution.

For this purpose, the following procedures in the registration shall be adopted:

a) The applicant shall personally accomplish two (2) copies of the prescribed application form (Annex "B"), affixed his left and right thumbmarks at the back of the forms, and present the same to the Office of the Election Officer, together with any of the following documents:

1. Current employee's identification card (ID) with his picture and signature and the signature of the employer or authorized representative;

2. Student's ID or library card with picture and signed by the school authority

3. Postal ID;

4. Senior Citizen's ID

5. Driver's license

6. NBI/PNP clearance with picture; or

7. Passport.

Community Tax Certificate alone shall not be honored.

In the absence of the above documents, another voter may, under oath, identify the applicant. However, no voter shall be allowed to identify more than three (3) applicants unless they are immediate members of his family or a relative within the fourth civil degree of consanguinity or affinity.

The application forms may be reproduced or photocopied and accomplished even before the applicant goes to the Office of the Election Officer to apply for registration.

The Election Officer shall adopt a system of processing applications for registration to speed up the registration process, minimize queuing and avoid inconvenience.

b) If the applicant does not have a pre-accomplished form, the Election Officer shall inform the applicant of the qualifications and disqualifications for registration, issue two (2) copies of the application forms, request the applicant to accomplish the form, affix his left and right thumbprints at the back of the forms, and return the same to the Election Officer after it has been accomplished, together with any of the identification documents mentioned above.

c) Upon receipt of the application form, the Election Officer shall, on the basis of identification documents submitted, determine whether the applicant is the same person applying for registration.

If the applicant is the same person applying for registration, the Election Officer shall verify whether or not the address given by the applicant is within the territorial boundary of any of the precincts in the city/municipality. If the applicant is not the same person applying for the registration, the Election Officer/Interviewer shall not issue or accept the application.

c) If the Election Officer is satisfied with the identity and residence of the applicant, he shall write down the precinct assignment of the applicant at the right upper hand portion of the form. In cities/municipalities where precinct territories have been delineated and numbered pursuant to the precinct-mapping project, the precincts based on precinct mapping results shall be used. In cities/municipalities where no precinct maps have been delineated and numbered, the current precincts shall be used, subject to submission later of the correct precinct assignments based on precinct mapping results.

d) The Election Officer shall make sure that the application form has been filled up completely and legibly, and then write down the Application Form Number in the space provided for in the form, administer the oath, sign the form in the designated portion, return the form to the applicant.

The Application Form Number shall consist of four parts. The first part represents the two (2) digit province code, the second part stands for the two (2) digit city/municipal code, the third part pertains to the default code, which is "00", and the fourth stands for the seven (7) digit control code starting with 0000001 for the first applicant, 0000002 for the next applicant and so on.

e) Thereafter, the Election Officer shall give one (1) copy of the accomplished application form to the applicant and retain one (1) copy for the Office of the Election Officer;

f) The Election Officer shall record in a logbook the names of the applicant, their corresponding application form numbers, the date of the filing of the applications. Thereafter, he shall compile the application forms, arrange them by precinct and submit the same as provided in Section 27 hereof.

The other provisions in this Resolution shall, insofar as applicable, apply in the registration and processing of applications for transfer of registration records, change of name, correction of entry, reactivation of registration records, deactivation of registration records and cancellation of registration.
