AN ACT FURTHER TO AMEND SECTION TWENTY-SIX HUNDRED AND FORTY-SEVEN OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE CODE, AS AMENDED BY ACT NUMBERED THIRTY-THREE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-SEVEN.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the Philippines in Legislature assembled and by the authority of the same:

SECTION 1. Section twenty-six hundred and forty-seven of Act Numbered Twenty-seven hundred and eleven, known as the Administrative Code, as amended by Act Numbered Thirty-three hundred and eighty-seven, is hereby further amended to read as follows:
"SEC. 2647. Unlawful registration.—Any person who causes or attempts to cause his name to be registered, knowingly that he is not a qualified voter in the district which he registers, or who attempts to register, and any person who, having previously registered in any other polling place, does not first request the necessary cancellation or cancellations as required by the Election Law, and any person who falsely represents himself as some other person to any election officer or board of registry, or who willfully gives a false answer relative to any matter relating to the registration of a voter or to the right of any person to vote, or who willfully aids or abets any other person in doing any of the acts above mentioned, shall be punished Toy imprisonment for not less than one month nor more than two years, and by a fine of not less than one hundred pesos nor more than one thousand pesos, and in all cases by deprivation of the right of suffrage and disqualification from public office during a period not to exceed four years: Provided, however, That when any person causes, or attempts to cause his name to be registered, knowingly that he is not a qualified voter in the district in which he attempts to register, or, having previously registered in any other polling place, does not first request the necessary cancellation or cancellations, and is criminally prosecuted and it is shown in the trial that, in the first case, he did not vote in the election in which the unlawful registration took place, or, in the second, that he did not vote or voted only once, such fact shall constitute a valid and efficacious defense."
SEC. 2. This Act shall take effect on its approval.

Approved, November 16, 1931.
