Resolution No. 9650
IN THE MATTER OF THE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF ELECTION INSPECTORS (BEIs) WHOSE REGISTRATION RECORDS WERE INADVERTENTLY DEACTIVATED
Promulgation: 28 February 2013
WHEREAS, there were reports received from the field offices of the Commission on Elections (Commission) raising concern on the shortage of public school teachers who are qualified to serve as members of the Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) since some of those who served in the last elections were deactivated on the ground of failure to vote in two succeeding regular elections;
WHEREAS, the concerned teachers were claiming to have voted in the May 10, 2010 National and Local Elections and based on preliminary verification they might have erroneously voted in the polling place of the clustered precinct where they were assigned for election duty and not in the precinct where they are registered;
WHEREAS, similar issue arose during the 2010 elections and the Commission addressed the matter through Resolution No. 8878, promulgated on May 7, 2010, which resolve to activate the registration records of the concerned BEIs in order for them to serve for the forthcoming May 13, 2013 National and Local Elections;
NOW, THEREFORE, the Commission on Elections, by virtue of the power vested in it by the Constitution, the Omnibus Election Code, and other election laws, has RESOLVED, as it hereby RESOLVES to activate the registration records of public school teachers who were duly appointed to serve as Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) but whose registration records were deactivated in connection with the May 13, 2013 National and Local Elections.
The Education and Information Department (EID) shall cause the immediate publication of this Resolution and shall furnish copies thereof to the Department of Education, all Regional Election Directors, Provincial Election Supervisors, Election Officers and Boards of Election Inspectors nationwide.
