Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 15)— The Commission on Elections launched on Tuesday a mobile application that aims to streamline the process for voter registration.

The mobile app was rolled out in select pilot areas earlier this month. It is currently being implemented in over 500 cities and municipalities nationwide.

The poll body earlier said there will be no extension for the voter registration for the upcoming 2022 polls — with the deadline set on September 30.
