The 2023 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections (BSKE) is set this coming October 30, and voters who wish to cast their ballots in a more comfortable location can do so at select SM malls.

Five SM malls will be participating in the pilot implementation of mall voting: SM City Manila, SM City North Edsa, SM City Sucat, SM City Legazpi in Albay, and SM City Consolacion in Cebu for a total of more than 8,000 registered voters.

“Thank you, COMELEC, for choosing us as your constant partner in giving the public better access to government services. We once again extend our hand to everyone, especially the youth, to come to our malls and take part in selecting the leaders of our local barangays and the Sangguniang Kabataan,” said SM Supermalls President Steven Tan.

Meanwhile, according to COMELEC Chairman George Erwin Garcia, this project will help make it easier, more comfortable, and more efficient for voters to cast their ballots, especially the vulnerable sectors including the elderly, disabled, and pregnant women. 

On August 19, a simulation of the mall voting process will be held at SM City Manila and SM City Legazpi in Albay.
