The Commission on Elections (Comelec) partnered with selected Robinsons Malls as a polling venue for the 2023 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections (BSKE) on Oct. 30.
"Through Robinsons Malls Lingkod Pinoy Center and Comelec, the elections for the identified barangays will be more accessible, convenient, and comfortable, which in turn will encourage more people to go out and vote," the Robinsons Malls said in a statement on Thursday, Aug. 10.
Five Robinsons Malls are set for mall voting venues: Robinsons Magnolia, Robinsons Metro East, Robinsons Manila, Robinsons Las Pinas, and Robinsons Galleria Cebu.
It will accommodate more than 8,000 registered voters from Brgy. Horseshoe, Brgy. Dela Paz, Brgy. 668, Brgy. Talon Tres, and Brgy. Parian, respectively.
Executive Vice President and Business Unit General Manager Faraday Go expressed Robinsons Land Corporation's honor in re-establishing collaboration with COMELEC to further enhance customer service.
"Our strategic partnership with COMELEC dates back to 2014 when Robinsons Malls became the first mall in the country to host off-site voter registration with services such as biometrics, issuance of voter's certificate, and voters ID," he said.
He added that Robinsons Malls has extended its support by hosting satellite voter registration venues over the past several years.
Go pointed out that in 2022, Comelec selected Robinsons Malls as the inaugural venue for the Register Anywhere Program, stressing the accessibility and convenience of voter registration through this partnership.
