Elections Commission Philippines Overseas Voter Registration :

The voter ID cannot be printed without the biometrics data. Doing so would defeat the purpose because there will be no way of identifying the person to whom the ID belongs without an image of a face to connect it to.


The voters identification card is being issued to the registered voter pursuant to Section 25 of Republic Act No. 8189. It shall serve as a document for his identification. In case of loss or destruction, no copy thereof may be issued except to the registered voter himself and only upon the authority of the Commission.

The Voter ID card is a valid ID that is recognized by all government offices and banks for a person’s identification purposes. It is however not a requirement for a person to vote.


What is the voter ID? :
The voter ID is a valid ID that is recognized by all government offices and banks for a person’s identification purposes and is being issued to the registered voter pursuant to Section 25 of Resolution No. 8189. It shall serve as a document for his identification

Who are entitled to have a voter ID? :
Only registered voters whose biometrics (i.e. photograph, fingerprints and signature) have been successfully captured digitally using COMELEC’s Voter’s Registration Machine (VRM), or the old Data Capture Machine (DCM), during application may be issued a voter ID card. NO BIOMETRICS, NO ID.

Is a voter ID card a requirement for voting? :
No. A voter ID card is not a requirement for a person to vote. However, if questioned by the Board of Election Inspectors (BEI) on Election Day, a voter may present his (or her) voter ID or any other valid ID.

If I apply for registration today, how soon can I get my voter ID? :
All applications filed with the Office of the Election Officer (OEO) needs to be approved by the Election Registration Board (ERB) first before these can be submitted to the main office for voter ID generation. The ERB meets only 4x every year: every 3rd Monday of January, April, July, and October. An application will be approved (or disapproved) on the next available schedule of the ERB after the date of filing.

Only after ERB approval and some clerical procedures at the OEO will the approved registration records be transmitted to the main office for voter ID processing. When the ERB registration records arrives at the main office, give us a maximum of 6 months to generate your voter ID.

Why does ID generation take so long? :
The ID generation process includes a fingerprint-matching procedure to filter out voters that have multiple records. This involves matching each new record with the existing 52 million records in the national voter database. Only after that will the generation of the ID take place. The length of the ID generation activity depends mainly on the volume of records received for processing.

I registered more than 4 years ago. Why is my ID not yet printed? :
A voter ID cannot be printed if the corresponding registration record has unreadable or poor quality of fingerprint impressions, or has dim, blurred, or improperly cropped photographs. If this is the case, the concerned voter should be notified by the local COMELEC office to appear for recapturing of biometrics data.

It is also possible that your ID may have been inadvertently lost or misplaced during the initial implementation of the Voter ID Project. If this is the case, have your Election Officer submit a request for replacement to the COMELEC main office
Where and when can I claim my voter ID?

Although printed at the main office, voter IDs can only be claimed personally from your local COMELEC Offices during regular office hours. The Election Officer (EO) shall see to it that the rightful owner claims the ID card.

How can I apply for the correction of entries in my voter ID? :
Entries in the voter ID card are from the registration record as encoded by the local COMELEC office. Should there be any need for correction of entries, notify your EO who shall give you further instructions.

  12. 2017 is approaching fast & yet my voter’s id is still not received. Application for Registration since 2010 with application no 6801300005471. Everytime when I went to our local comelec office they would just say “we need to wait”. How long do I have to wait for it? Is there any way that I could have this updated?

  13. I went to our municipality in Gen.Trias here in Cavite but they told me that my voter id was not yet released. I’ve been registered in the year 2011 and I did not get voter id yet.

  16. We registered on October 2013 for the Barangay Election. Last July 2016, my cousin and me went to Quezon City hall to claim our voters ID. However upon visiting District 4’s office we are advised that our IDs were still unavailable. Its been a rude approach at first however our IDs are much important. Those inlined girls and boys who were fond of Facebook said that only the 1st quarter voters are release without exerting effort to know our names and take a minute to search it on the list. How can it be? Its been three years. How long does it take to claim our IDs? We are on various transactions which requires the Voters ID on the top list.

  17. Misplacing the ID is one of your reasons for it taking so long? Are you kidding it’s been more than 4 years and I have no idea what happened since the office doesn’t care to contact you if ever there’s a problem.

    1. I would like to know if there is a link here in this website. Where can I check if my Voter ID is already available?

  58. How can we reconcile Section 34 of RA 8189 to that of Section 49 of COMELEC Resolution No. 9853 with respect to the last day of filing petition for inclusion of voters in the list? Would it be safe to conclude that the last day for filing petition was January 25, 2016? There are contrasting interpretations of the law that I need to be legally clarified.

  59. I am a registered voter since 2004 but until I’m still waiting for my voter’s i.d. My family already have.

  60. I am still waiting for my voters ID. I am registered since 2005. AT BRGY LUNDUBAN BUADIPOSO BUNTONG LANAO DEL SUR How long does it take?

  62. I already get my voters id delivered by our Barangay officials. But I saw there is a mistake on the spelling of my last name,so I decided to return my id because its useless. But when I requested my voters certification,nothing wrong all details are correct. My question is, why the voters id details is not same to certification? Second,can i request another voter id with a correct details like my voters certification?

  63. How can I get my voter’s id? Its been 4 years since I register. How many times do I have to go in comelec office in our city (science city of Munoz, Nueva Ecija) to ask if my id is there already?

  64. I am a registered voter since 2009, my biometric status was active since 2010. How hassle it was going back all over again at comelec. Six years of counting waiting for my voter’s id but still it was not in our local comelec. Can you give me a time frame on how long I’ve been waiting for?

Now the question is am I and my family members going to receive a new voters id?

  69. I have given them the duly stamped birth certificate from our municipal registrar to affirm the correctness of the name. I am using while voting. I have voted again using the correct name and my vote was already counted. However I think its been 6 years since I applied for voter’s ID. Is there an online verification if our voter’s ID have already been printed and sent to our respective municipalities since Comelec local office doesn’t know also when the ID will arrive? I don’t want to receive the same complaint of Comelec that my name is misspelled, and will have to give another duly stamped registrar’s copy of my birth certificate. I know you are busy today, but the letter you’ve sent me as a voter had my name correctly, and always remind me that if you have my name in correct form, and you have my duly stamped registrar’s copy of my birth certificate, and you counted my vote without question, what took it so long for a simple ID print. I will gladly pay for an LBC service, if it will ensure and speed up the delivery of the ID, since we can do it for a passport that only lasts for 6 years compared to a voter’s ID that has no expiration.

  112. When I searched my name up, it says that my id is AVAILABLE FOR CLAIMING. But earlier today, I went to my local comelec office and was informed that my id was not available. This is a real hassle, because I had to take a leave leave off from work in order to claim my id, and then I was not able to.

    I asked them how it could be, because I had also called the comelec hotline, and had been informed the same. That my id was indeed already available for claiming.

    Here is what our local comelec office explained to me:

    The main comelec office sends them a list of the available ids, and then they forward this list to the barangays. My name still has not been included yet, according to them. I was told that I’ll just have to check with my Barangay.

    I asked if there is a schedule for the list, like if it was released annually or quarterly for example, just so I would know how often to check with my Barangay. They answered that there is no regular schedule, that the main comelec office just sends the batches whenever.

    My registration date is March 20, 2009. This is almost 7 years ago.

    Because both the comelec website and hotline misinformed me on the availability of my voter’s id. Are there other sources I can check with other than having to check with my Barangay ‘whenever’, one that will not mislead me? The local comelec office wont give their number and insisted that the only way is to check with my Barangay.

    1. I also had the same experience, I registered last 2010 but still no I.D. The issue is getting on my nerves a lot lately because when involving money transactions they will need government I.D’s but it should be digitized. Most of my friends who voted later than me already got their I.D’s.

  113. I just registered last year biometrics in COMELEC last year and it is my first time to vote. Can I get an ID before the election or I have to vote first before I can get an ID?

    1. Where and when can I claim my voter ID?
      Although printed at the main office, voter IDs can only be claimed personally from your local COMELEC Offices during regular office hours. The Election Officer (EO) shall see to it that the rightful owner claims the ID card.

    1. Yes, you can get the voters certification anytime you want! Just go in the comelec office in your place.

  114. I have been done my biometric last 2013 and also I saw in comelec website on predict finder said that was already printed but when claim in comelec office in my place zamboanga city they said still not yet come. When will I get voter id? Since 2003 I had been registered.

    1. Qualifications to register :
      ** A Filipino citizen, who is not yet a registered voter;
      ** At least eighteen (18) years of age;
      ** A resident of the Philippines for at least one (1) year;
      ** A resident in the place wherein he (or she) proposes to vote for at least six (6) months immediately preceding the May 9, 2016 Synchronized National, Local and ARMM Regional Elections; and
      ** Not otherwise disqualified by law.

      Those who will be turning 18 on or before 09 May 2016, or whose required period of residence will be satisfied on or before said election date, may already file their applicants for registration.

  115. Hi,

    I registered in 2003 together with my high school friends but all of them received their voter’s ID via mail but I didn’t. My mother went to the local office earlier last month and was told that it would just be sent to us. They couldn’t provide us the date though. Are you able to give us a time frame as I kind of need it to apply for a passport.

    You help will be much appreciated.


  116. I registered at ph embassy Singapore last 08 July 2015 but my voters id have not been sent to my home address in Philippines. Its been 4 months already.

  117. I have a question about my voter’s I.D.
