COMELEC Voter Status 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 this status 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.
This online facility only uses the submitted data by your local COMELEC office, which has direct jurisdiction over the details of your voter registration record.
This facility is updated as of the last 20 April 2015 ERB hearing which approved (or disapproved) applications filed on or before 31 March 2015.
If you filed your application after 01 April 2015, do not expect your record to be found (or updated).
For overseas voters, the Precinct Finder is not for you. Use the Post Finder instead.
If No Record Found
There are several possible reasons why a record cannot be found using the Precinct Finder :
** You mistyped some information.
** If this is the case, please return to the Precinct Finder page and make sure to enter the information correctly.
** There is an encoding error in your record as typed in by your local COMELEC office.
** If you have already tried out our tips and your registration record still could not be found, send us a screen capture of your Search Result page at IThelpdesk@comelec.gov.ph.
** Your application has not been approved yet by the Election Registration Board (ERB) in your city/municipality of residence.Remember that your application still has to be approved (or disapproved) by the ERB.
