July 18- 23 set by Comelec as National Registration Week for persons with disabilities

The Commission on Elections has set July 18 to 23 as Person With Disability (PWD) National Registration Week.

July 18 to 23 was especially chosen by Comelec because it coincides with the National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week. Those who will register during these dates will be given priority with the use of special registration lanes.

The PWDs who for one reason or another, will not be able to register during the PWD National Registration Week can still register until October 31, 2011 at the Offices of the City or Municipal Election Officers.

It may be recalled that the Comelec has started entertaining applicants for registration, transfer, change of name, correction of entries and validation since May 3, 2011.

Special centers exclusive to PWDs will be set up in SM Southmall, Las Piñas on July 21, SM Valenzuela (July 21), SM Marikina (July 22), SM Manila (July 22 to 23), SM San Lazaro (July 23), SM North Edsa (July 23) and SM Fairview (July 23). They will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
