MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Over two weeks before the 2022 National and Local Elections on May 9, the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) activated its Precinct Finder on Friday, April 22.
In collaboration with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), this aims to help voters verify their exact polling place and precinct on election day. Furthermore, it informs voters about their status, indicating whether they are ‘ACTIVE’ or ‘DEACTIVATED.’
To find out which polling precinct you are assigned to, you should go to https://voterverifier.comelec.gov.ph/voter precinct. If you are a registered voter, you can use the website to check your polling places and precinct information, as well as your voter status.
Moreover, you can use any web browser (Built-in Browsers, Chrome, Firefox, Mozilla, or Microsoft Edge) to access the COMELEC precinct finder. You simply need to fill in the requested information, such as your name and the place of your registration (province and city/municipality).
You must then validate the captcha by checking the box next to it and clicking the “Search” button to find out their polling center and precinct number.
In 2016, the polling organization’s website, among other things, was defaced. Some features were impacted, including the Precinct Finder, Video Demonstrations, and the Search function. Meanwhile, Comelec Commissioner George Garcia stated that the election preparations for May 9 are on track.
