Cavite Comelec Reviews Voters’ Lists

TRECE MARTIRES CITY, Cavite --- The Provincial Commission on Elections (Comelec) started looking over the voters' lists of the six cities and 17 municipalities in their turf.

The certified voters' lists will be posted at Comelec offices of the cities and towns for public confirmation, as well as scrutiny, on February 12. The posting was pursuant to Section 30 of Republic Act 8189.

Lawyer Juanito V. Ravanzo Jr., Comelec supervisor, citing reports of his staff and city and municipal election officers, said that the province's total number of May 13 mid-term election qualified and registered voters was 1,789,438.

The voter number, as recorded by the Comelec, was approximately 50.5 percent of the estimated 3,632,275 province's population that was reported by the Provincial Population Commission.

The province's 2013 voting number list was obtained by this reporter from the Comelec office here. The number came from the province's seven districts which comprised 829 barangays (villages).

The list showed that the province's fourth district (Dasmariñas City) has the biggest number of voters with 314,192, followed by second district (Bacoor City), 318,318; sixth district (comprising the towns of Amadeo, General Trias, Tanza and Trece Martires), 289,734; seventh district (Tagaytay City and towns of Alfonso, Bailen (formerly Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo), Indang, Magallanes, Maragondon, Mendez-Nunez, Naic and Ternate), 250,963; fifth district (towns of Carmona, General Mariano Alvarez and Silang), 229, 047; first district (Cavite City and Kawit, Noveleta and Rosario towns), 215,295; and Third District (Imus City, Cavite's capital), 171,889.

The total voting number for the upcoming elections was higher by some 150,000 as compared to the list of the 2010 elections where there are more than 1.6 million voters, it was estimated.

Ravanzo said the number makes Cavite the most vote-populous area in Luzon and No. 2 in the country after Cebu province.

Cebu, Cavite, and Pangasinan reigned as the top three provinces with the biggest voting population in the country in the last three election years, he said, based on national Comelec records.

Cavite is the country's most populated province, the National Statistics Office reported.

The Comelec and the Police Provincial Office said that they would do everything in keeping up with the 2013 Secured and Fair Elections (SAFE) program of the national government.

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) declared Cavite as one of the 15 provinces as "areas of concern" or election "hotspots."

An augmentation force, composed of military officers and men, has been assisting the Comelec and the police in the area terms of peace and security every election year.
