COMELEC How to replace lost voter ID

A registered voter may personally request with the local COMELEC office for the reprinting of a lost, torn or defaced voter ID.

The processing fee is currently placed at PhP100.00. The concerned voter is required to submit an affidavit of loss with his request for replacement.
I need a voter ID for my passport, but I don’t have a voter ID, what alternative document can I use? :
In lieu of the voter ID a person may submit a voter certification which can be obtained from the local COMELEC office or the National Central File Division at the main office in Intramuros, Manila. The processing fee is PhP75.00.
Can I have my photo/signature in my voter ID updated? :
The COMELEC only allows updating of photos /signature with applications for correction of entries due to change of civil status and legal change of name, and transfer of registration to another city/municipality.
Can I submit a photo to be used on my voter ID? :
No. Applicants for registration are required to submit themselves for live capture of biometrics data using the Voter Registration Machine (VRM). The photograph from this live capture will be the one to be printed on the ID.
Will a Voter ID be released even when a voter’s registration has already been cancelled or deleted? :
The IDs of voters whose registration records are already deleted due to multiple registrations, pursuant to Resolution No. 8882, or transfer of registration records due to change of residence to another district/city/municipality, or cancelled by reason of death shall no longer be released
Will a voter ID be released even when a voter’s registration is already deactivated? :
ID cards shall only be issued to voters with active registration status. The ID card of a voter with deactivated status will not be released until such time that he applies for the reactivation of his registration record and the ERB approves his application.
Will a voter ID be released even when there is a pending application for correction of entry? :
The ID cards of voters with pending applications for correction of entries in the registration record due to transfer of residence within the same district/city/municipality, or change of name and civil status by reason of marriage or other applicable court orders, shall no longer be issued. The concerned voters shall be issued new voter ID cards with the updated information.
Claim voter ID
Can I authorize someone to claim my voter ID? :
Yes, as long as the voter issues a notarized authorization letter to the person who will claim his ID on his behalf.
Is there a payment for claiming the voter ID? :
The voter ID is free-of-charge and is already laminated upon release. No fee should be charged by the local COMELEC office to the voter. Only ID reprints due to loss or damage are charged a minimal fee of PhP 100.00, which should be issued with an official receipt upon payment.
Why is it that, according to the Precinct Finder, my ID has already been printed but my local COMELEC office says that my ID is not yet available?
The precinct finder only indicates the date of ID printing at the COMELEC main office. It is possible that the printed IDs are still lined up for dispatch, especially if the date indicated is recent. This is the reason why we strongly recommend to call the local COMELEC office before going.
