At each Signature Station

Who are eligible to sign as petitioners?

Only registered voters in the municipality or city, where the signature station is located, are eligible to sign as petitioners.

This is because the Comelec Election Officer of the same municipality or city can verify only the signature of petitioners, who are registered voters within his/her area of jurisdiction.

Comelec Election Officers, who are custodians of records of registered voters, are assigned per municipality or city. In major cities with several legislative districts, they are assigned per legislative district. Hence, signature stations and eligible petitioners, in major cities with several legislative districts, are to be delineated by legislative district.
