In an interview, Comelec Chairman Andres Bautsita said the next round of voter registration for the BSKE will be held from Nov. 6 to 30.

He urged interested first-time regular and youth voters to register so they could participate in the next BSKE.

“We want to give an opportunity for all qualified voters to exercise their right of suffrage,” Bautista said.
