Things really are tough all over, as, according to reports received by the Commission on Elections, some election officers are trying to make an extra buck by charging new registrants for the lamination of their brand new voter's identification cards.
And, as it turns out, it is as hinky as it sounds.
"Warning lang sa aming election ofiers, naniningil raw ng laminations ng voter's ID. Bawal 'yun!" Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. said Wednesday.
"Libre po 'yung (lamination) ng voter's ID," he added.
Brillantes warned election officers that they face getting sacked if they are caught charging registrants for the lamination.
The registration of voters for the 2013 midterm elections will end on October 31. — DVM, GMA News
