URDANETA CITY – Over 1,800 detainees in the Ilocos Region are expected to cast their votes during the May 9 national and local elections, data from the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) in Region 1 showed.
Senior Insp. Condralyn Alfonso, chief of operation division of BJMP in Region 1, said out of the 3,926 inmates from all the BJMP-controlled jails since March 31, only 1, 806 inmates were registered and who will cast their votes either on-site or off-site.
Alfonso said there will be 13 on-site voting and seven off-site voting areas for inmates in the Ilocos Region.
“Majority of the number of inmate voters were from Pangasinan because it has seven district jails which have on-site facilities,” he said.
Based from the data of Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Pangasinan, at least 1, 014 inmates in the province are expected to vote on May 9.
Likewise, Comelec Resolution 9371, states that “detainees who shall be 18 years old on the day of the election and/or committed inside the detention center for at least six months” prior to election day may register as voters in the satellite registration booths set up in detention facilities.
