In case you don’t know your precinct number for the upcoming May 9, 2022 elections, there’s a quick solution for that. The Commission of Elections has come up with a web application that allows you to look up your precinct number.
The COMELEC Precinct Finder attempts to find and display the assigned precinct and polling center (or foreign service post if the voter is abroad) of active voters, whether registered in the Philippines or overseas. The voter database used for this online facility is updated as of the last voter registration period in October 2021.
To use the COMELEC Precinct Finder, go to https://voterverifier.comelec.gov.ph/voter_precinct and enter your first name, middle name, last name, province and city or municipality. Solve the Recaptcha code and click Search.
