Bacolod Election Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia said they need to hire more than 100 technical support staff who will help them in the operation of the PCOS machine for the May 13 mid-term elections.
Majarucon-Sia said the Board of Election Inspectors or poll workers are expected to convene.
They have enough public school teachers who will serve in this election, but they need several technical support staff member or poll workers, she said.
So they are encouraging the youth, especially students who are willing to serve, to apply at the Bacolod Comelec Office. They should be computer-literate, she added.
Majarucon-Sia said a technical support staff member will receive P2,000 during election day; P1,000 communication allowance; P1,000 traveling allowance, and P2,000 training allowance or a total of P6,000.
There are about 350 clustered precincts in Bacolod City, she said.
Meanwhile, Majarucon-Sia is requesting campaign managers and supporters of national and local candidates to remove posters or tarpaulins containing their Christmas greetings from several areas in Bacolod City since the election period will start on Sunday.
She said the campaign period for national candidates will be from February 12 to May 11.
Majarucon-Sia said that all tarpaulins that do not conform with the height requirement of 2 x 3 feet and are not posted in common poster areas should be removed. Otherwise, this will be considered as a violation.*
