Cleansing and updating of voters list through biometrics technology
The proposed “Biometrics registration” bill being sought by the Commission onElections Chairman Sixto Brillantes is just a presidential signature away from beingenacted into law.The Senate and House of Representatives have already ratified a bicameralconference committee report containing the consolidated copy of HB 3469 and SB 1030, astep before the enrolled copy could be transmitted to the President’s office.Brillantes earlier told a public hearing conducted by the Committee on Suffrage andElectoral Reforms chaired by Rep. Elpidio Barzaga, Jr. (Lone District, City of Dasmariñas) that of the 52 million registered voters, about 9 million have yet to submittheir biometrics.The proposed registration law is entitled “An Act Providing for MandatoryBiometrics Voter Registration,” which seeks to establish a clean, complete, permanent andupdated list of voters through the adoption of biometrics technology.Biometrics refers to the quantitative analysis that provides a positive identificationof an individual such as voice, photograph, fingerprint, signature, iris, and/or such other identifiable features captured by a device called the Data Capture Machine (DCM).Registered voters whose biometrics had not been captured shall submit themselvesfor validation to be conducted by City or Municipal Election Officers.Under the Congress-ratified measure, the Commission on Elections shall conductvalidation beginning July 1, 2013, consistent with the continuing registration under Republic Act 8189.The Comelec shall cause the publication of the commencement of the validation intwo newspapers of general circulation. The City or Municipal Election Officer shall serveindividual written notices by registered mail with return card to the voters concerned attheir latest address in the voter’s registration record and post the list of voters concerned inthe city or municipal bulletin board and in the local Comelec office.Voters who fail to submit for validation on or before that last day of filing of application for registration for purposes of the May 2016 elections shall be deactivated pursuant to the proposed biometrics law.However, those deactivated under the proposed measure may apply for reactivationafter the May 2016 elections following the procedure provided in Section 28 of R.A. 8189
