COMELEC Overseas Voter Registration

We at the OFOV, with the able support of our public partners, value every citizen’s fundamental right of suffrage. With this in mind, we do our best to make the registration and voting processes more accessible to all qualified Filipino citizens overseas.

With the passage of Republic Act 9189 as amended by Republic Act 10590 or the Overseas Voting Act of 2013, the voice of our fellow citizens abroad can now be heard. This time, the fact of being away from home should never be a hindrance for Filipino citizens abroad to exercise their fundamental right of suffrage.

In view of the forthcoming 2016 National and Local Elections, all qualified Filipino citizens are encouraged to register for the purpose of exercising their sacred right of suffrage. Qualified overseas Filipino citizens simply need to visit the Philippine embassy or Foreign Service Post in the country where they are presently residing or any of the field and mobile registration centers in the Philippines.

Moreover, registration and accomplishment of election related forms have also been made easier for all qualified Filipino citizens both here and abroad. Through the COMELEC’S iRehistro Project, any qualified Filipino citizen can now accomplish election related forms on-line at any time in the convenience of their homes. All they have to do is visit the COMELEC website and follow the iRehistro link.

Finally, we call on all qualified overseas Filipino citizens to make their voices heard and make their votes count, register and vote in the coming 2016 elections

iRehistro for Overseas Voting

Welcome to iRehistro for Overseas Voting, your portal to the on-line accomplishment of the Overseas Voter Registration Form (OVRF).

Take note that using this online facility only attempts to facilitate the process of accomplishment of the Application Form. It DOES NOT automatically mean approval of your application. You still have to personally appear before your country’s Philippine Embassy or Consulate for biometrics capture to complete the filing process.

After this, the Resident Election Registration Board (RERB) still has to approve your application during the scheduled date for the next RERB hearing.

iRehistro Security Warning

iRehistro is being made available from a secure site that uses Open Source security certificate.

If this may sound foreign sounding to you, do not worry. It simply means that we are trying to secure your information from unscrupulous people who may want to steal your information.

If you access an iRehistro online form for the first time from a computer or a mobile device, you may get a message telling that you that the connection is untrusted or unsafe. (This is different for every browser.)

Just select the next available option for you to be able to continue with the process until you get to the actual online form that you need.

    I am a Caloocan City NCR Third District registered voter. While in Qatar, I applied for registration/certification for approval of Qatar RER on 27 March 2015. Claim date was November 2015, number 6342520140005705. I was not able to claim because I left Qatar for good before claim date. Also I was not able to vote in succeeding elections.
    Please advice me so that I can vote this coming Election.

  60. Baby Jean Quitor Penado

    I just want to know if my name is still active. I registered on April 15 2012.

  61. When I was processing my documents at the DFA Manila last July 21, 2015, I was asked by one of your staffs if I am an OFW and I said yes, so she gave me a form to be filled up since that I will vote outside the country. So she catered me the process of the registration which was even biometrics catered on me. She gave me a stub or acknowledgement receipt for my registration and now as I checked my name on the List of Overseas Voters List here in Dubai, I couldn’t find my name. I never skipped voting since 2004 until 2013 by the way, but still what in the world happened to my name, what will I do now to still catch up with the 2016 elections?

    1. I’m having the same issue like yours. I already have this stub, but now its useless because the immigration here in Qatar told us that there’s nothing they can do about it anymore. They didn’t follow up comelec about it.

    2. Try to find your name on other country’s list. I’m staying here in Japan but found my name on list under Nigeria.

  64. Belen A. Fortaleza

    Presently I am here in Seoul South Korea,last July 2015. I renewed my passport and automatically I filled up form for voters ID,and I’ve kept the claim stub,but I haven’t received my ID yet. Can I vote this coming May for Presidential election here in Seoul Phil. Embassy?

  65. Clarification:
    When I secured my OEC last May 2015 at POEA I asked there about registration for OFW absentee voting, and they responded that you will just show to the PH embassy your PH passport to vote. Now, when I asked our PH Embassy in Baghdad Iraq (I am working here in Erbil) they told me that they doesn’t have activity for absentee voting here in Erbil Iraq. Why there is no absentee voting? How we can vote for our freedom to select for the next PH President.
