2. Comelec approves voting in malls
Imagine waiting in line in a fully air conditioned mall to vote? Much more encouraging and convenient, right? The election-governing body gave a go signal for shopping malls to be used as voting venues come election day in May 2016 to "enhance the voting process." Comelec allows the use of "other appropriate private buildings" if "no public school or other public building" can be used. This is the next logical step after voter registration was allowed to be conducted in malls this year. Two of the biggest malls Robinsons Malls and SM Supermalls have agreed to participate. More details will be out later this month when Comelec's technical working group submits its report. (rappler.com)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
