UPDATED April 22, 2022 – The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Precinct Finder for voters is now live.
The Philippines’ poll body announced in early April that the Precinct Finder, Voter registration status verifier, Online voter’s certificate application, and Election results website are expected to be available online soon after it signed an agreement with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) for the hosting of the four online services in relation to the May 2022 elections.
It is recommended for both new voters and previously registered voters to check their status to find out if they can still vote in the upcoming elections.
In previous elections, the COMELEC offered precinct/polling verification services to save voters some time and help them make sure if the trip is worth taking should they need to physically visit the office.
The Precinct Finder online service is offered when nearing an election to help voters validate their registration records to check if they are active voters who are eligible to vote in the upcoming national and local elections.
The Precinct Finder also verifies if the voter record also bears biometrics data, the precinct number, and the polling center. Both Philippines-based and overseas Filipinos can find their status on the Precinct Finder feature.
The COMELEC PRECINCT FINDER can be accessed at this site.
If you do not find your name on the Precinct Finder, the COMELEC directs voters in the Philippines to contact their municipal or city Election Officer through email, call, or office visit to get their voter registration record and for further validation. Overseas voters can contact the Office for Overseas Voting.
Find your local Election Officer in this COMELEC online list.
Check back on this post for updates on links to these online services.
Voter registration for the Philippine elections in 2022 originally scheduled to end by September 2021 was extended from October 11 to 30, following the unanimous vote of the COMELEC En Banc. Voters were also allowed to Register in Shopping Malls.
