Precinct Finder / Post Finder Tips

This online service attempts to find and display the assigned precinct and polling center (or foreign service post) of active Filipino voters (whether registered in the Philippines or overseas). This is to provide information on where the concerned voters need to go to vote on Election Day this coming 13 May 2019 National and Local Elections. The voter database that is used for this service is updated as of the last voter registration period in September 2018.

Voters whose records have been deactivated for failure to vote in two consecutive regular elections or other applicable reasons will not be able to vote this coming May 2019. They will have to wait for the next resumption of the voter registration period after the May 2019 elections in order to have their registration record reactivated.

Required information

The search facility is very straightforward and easy to use. It only requires that you type in your First Name, Middle Name, Last Name, Province and City/Municipality of registration. All of these should be provided in order for the search to work.

Voters also have other options to check their precinct:

1. Manually check the voters list if you are near the school or Comelec office to be used for the election day.

2. Call or e-mail Precinct Finder Hotline

"We are working to improve the Precinct Finder to ensure the protection of your private information. In the meantime, we will be glad to assist you through our Precinct Finder Hotline which you can reach through the following phone numbers and email addresses:

Landline: (02) 526-7769
Email: voters_id@comelec.gov.ph or itd@comelec.gov.ph

Thank you for your patience, through this inconvenience."

3. Direct message to Radyo Comelec on Twitter


Malacañang Palace on Tuesday said they are ready to serve over 60 million voters who will take part in the May 13 national and local elections.
