for shooting man dead

Today is the last day of voter's registration for the October barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections and there will be no extension, Bacolod Election Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia said yesterday.

Majarucon-Sia said they started the voter's registration on Nov. 7, 2016 after the May elections. The schedule had been set by the Commission on Elections, she said.

They are following their calendar of activities and do not want to be caught off-guard, in case the barangay and SK elections push through with everything still hanging, and want to be prepared in case they will be held in October, Majarucon-Sia said. .moremoremore
