Saab Magalona used a cute video with her son Vito through a Twitter thread to catch the attention of her followers. 

“Voter registration resumes today, the first day of September. Comelec is only offering in-person registration despite the pandemic due to the need to gather biometrics data,” she wrote. “Remember: No mask and face shield, no registration,” she added. 

 

 

In another tweet, Saab called on the attention of Commission on Elections Spokesman James Jimenez after encountering problems with accessing the COMELEC’s website.

 

 

Responding to Saab’s tweet, James responded: “We’re setting up mirror sites. Thanks!”

 

 

Thanking Jimenez for his response, Saab replied: “The youth will be waiting! Thank you!”

Jake Ejercito, on the other hand, highlighted the importance of voter registration especially those between ages of 18 to 35. 

“Voter registration na, sinta ko! Specially calling on the 18-35s. Let’s not give the future away. #MagpaRehistroKa,” he wrote. 

 

 

Jennylyn Mercado, for her part, wrote: “Responsibilidad natin eto. Register and vote!” 

 

 

The Presidential elections is scheduled to be held in May 2022.
