MEDIA and VOTER ADVOCACY

2000 Registration Deadline

Voter information dissemination was a tough challenge with the total number of registered voters increasing. As a public service, Namfrel and the Philippine Daily Inquirer published an ad calling on voters to register; however, many were not able to beat the December 27, 2000 deadline for continuing registration of voters. There were numerous petitions especially from different youth organizations for a two-day special registration of voters, on February 17 and 18, 2001, but the request was denied on February 8, 2001 by a Comelec en banc resolution.

The number of positions to be voted for in the May 2001 elections ranged from 28 to 34, from the 13 senators, party list organization, congressman, governor, vice-governor and provincial councilors, to the city/town mayor, vice-mayor, and city/town councilors.
