1
ARMM has a total registered voters of 1,816,022. Last month, the Congress passed joint resolutions authorizedthe COMELEC to annul and obliterate the Book of Voters (BOV) of ARMM.
 
  We commend the legislature and we do not oppose the cleansing of BOV for a meaningful participative election in ARMM.However, we come to this Honorable Commission to avoid massdisenfranchisement of voters who will be affected by the massiveannulment of book of voters.Under the existing COMELEC rules, registration can be had only in aprecinct where the voter resides or domicile. By annulling the BOV andrequire a General Registration in ARMM on 9 to 18 July 2012 woulddisenfranchise voters who, for legal justifiable cause cannot register. Or would defray huge amount of expenses to re-register.Thus, petitioner seeks the compassion of this Honorable Commissionto promulgate rules to accommodate those who will be disenfranchised by reason of occupation, trade, profession, educational activities, family,personal and financial constraints, to re-register anew 9 to 18 July 2012.
NATURE OF THE PETITION
This petition is governed by the provision of Rule 31 which pertains tothe Annulment of Permanent List of Voters.Section 1 thereof provides:
 
statistically improbable, may be annulled by theCommission.
 Any interested party may oppose under Sec. 3, Rule 31 by way of a verified opposition to the petition to the foregoing annulment of election.
