Registered voters may now check their actual polling precincts before election day.
To help voters, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) and the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) on April 22 activated the online precinct finder, which allows voters to locate where they should vote and other key information about voting on Election Day.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to find your polling precinct online.
Visit the official COMELEC Precinct Finder website online at https://voterverifier.comelec.gov.ph/voter_precinct
Once you have loaded the page, select your location (Philippines or overseas), and fill in a few key details such as your complete name, and the place (province, city/municipality) where you are registered as a voter.
While the website is very straightforward with its requirements, there may also be specific rules on how to put in your name. For example, you may need to abbreviate or spell out in full some names like Maria/Ma., Jr/Junior/III.
COMELEC notes that no personal information is being stored when you access this platform. Also, the website may take time in loading. If you happen to encounter this, patience is a virtue.
If these steps still did not work, you may try to contact your local Commission on Elections (COMELEC) office that has jurisdiction over your registration. We hope this quick guide helped you in your search!
The voter precinct finder has been launched on April 22, 2022 in coordination with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), which hosts cloud services for COMELEC for this year’s elections.
