Based on the COMELEC’s website, some 23,788 voters in Cagayan de Oro City are still without or with incomplete biometrics which could lead to the deactivation of their registration records and will not be able to vote in next year’s elections.
As per Republic Act No. 10367, the absence of biometrics in a voter’s registration record is a ground for deactivation. Voters who would fail to submit themselves for validation between 06 May 2014 to 31 October 2015 would cause COMELEC to deactivate their registration record. This would mean that these deactivated voters not be allowed to vote for the May 2016 elections.
The Data from COMELEC is as of 19 January 2015. Below is a screenshot of the first and last part of the list (in alphabetical order).
