The Commission on Elections assured the basic information of voter registrants using its newly launched Mobile Registration Form App is protected.
Comelec Commissioner Marlon Casquejo said, “It is a stand alone, meaning you don’t need to have an internet connection to access the mobile registration form app. So in that case hacking incident is remote. Considering the application that we developed is not connected to the internet.”
He added the app can be initially accessed in 500 pilot areas in the country.
Under the iRehistro project, available at www.comelec.gov.ph, applicants can fill up the online application form.
Casquejo added only a mobile phone is needed to be able to download and fill up the registration form.
He noted, “You don’t need to fill the forms in three copies using ballpens and then filling it up and taking them 10 to 15 minutes, but by using mobile app, it only takes them three minutes in filling up application form.”
