Voter Verification :
Online status verification of one’s registration record is possible with the use of the Precinct Finder facility in this Site. It gives a person the capability to verify the status of his (or her) registration online — whether registered or not, whether active or not, whether with biometrics or none. For Overseas Filipinos, this functionality is available via the Post Finder facility.

In the old days :
Before the availability of this facility in the COMELEC Website, a registered voter has to personally visit or call the local COMELEC office for any inquiry regarding the status of his (or her) registration record.

Voter information that can be provided online :
Nowadays, this personal visit or call to the local COMELEC office is no longer mandatory if your question is as simple as
** Am I already registered?
** What is the status of my registration record?
** Does my record have biometrics data?
** What is my precinct number?
** Where is my polling center?

These are questions that may already be answered without leaving the comforts of your home or from anywhere you please, as long as you have Internet access.

Although you may still need to really go personally to your local COMELEC office for some other matters (to get your voter ID card, for example; or to file your application or to update your record), verifying here first can save you some time and help you make sure if the trip is worth taking.
