Presidential deputy spokesman Abigail Valte is among the disenfranchised voters for this election.
Valte said she voted back in 2010 but couldn't find her name in the list of registered voters for this year's poll.
In her Twitter account, Valte lamented that Comelec claimed her signature did not appear in the 2010 list, hence she had to be taken out of the list.
"Came from the Makati COMELEC office.record says I didn't vote in 2 consecutive elections but I voted in 2010. How can that be?!"
"COMELEC official showed me the list from 2010 & it didn't have my thumb print or signature. Impossible that I didn't sign it then," Valte added.
Valte said she used the Comelec election application but it apparently gave the wrong precinct number.
"I went to the makati office, I looked for all. I saw my precinct I couldn't find my name," Valte said in a phone interview.
Valte said Comelec delisted her from the voters' list because she did not participate in two consecutive elections, one in 2010 and in the Barangay elections. However, Valte said she voted in 2010, her first ever, so she was surprised she was out of the list.
"Wala. What i can do? [Comelec] needs to reactivate," she added.
Valte said around 20 other people in the precinct were having the same problem.
