A few weeks to go before election day, registered voters can now check their actual polling precincts.
For the first time since 2016, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) made the Precinct Finder available to the public on Friday.
Filipinos can now check the specifics of their voter registration records at https://voterverifier.comelec.gov.ph/voter_precinct.
Voters are asked to provide information such as whether they are local or foreign voters, their first, middle, and last names, and their registration location (province, city/municipality).
The Comelec has teamed up with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) to host the former’s multiple online systems, including the Precinct Finder, that are critical to the next elections.
Among other things, the polling body’s website was defaced in 2016. Some features, such as the Precinct Finder, Video Demonstrations, and the Search function, were affected.
Meanwhile, Comelec Commissioner George Garcia stated that the preparations for the May 9 elections are on track.
