At least 80 persons deprived of liberty successfully registered during the COMELEC offsite registration at the Baguio City Jail on Monday, January 9, 2022. COMELEC Baguio City Election Officer Atty. John Paul Martin said that there were 58 male PDLs and 23 female PDLs who took the opportunity to register during the one-day voter registration for the upcoming 2023 Barangay and
SK Elections. Atty. Martin said that the satellite registration for the PDLs of the Baguio City Jail is part of the weeklong vulnerable sector special voter registration in the city of Baguio.

He said the COMELEC provided this week to give priority for those identified as part of the vulnerable sector which includes the PDLs, senior citizens, persons with disabilities, youth, and indigenous peoples for a special consideration for voter registration.

Most of the registrants are from Baguio City while some transferred their registration in Baguio City as they intend to vote in the facility during the BSKE in October 2023. The activity in the Baguio City Jail is also in coordination with the BJMP-CAR and Baguio City Jail Male Dorm Warden JSupt. April Rose Ayangwa.
