This early, voters can verify their registration online using Comelec’s precinct finder.
The Commission on Election (Comelec) says, though, that some names, especially those who only registered starting April 1, 2009, might not yet appear in searches.
Since some cities and towns have not submitted an updated list of voters, residents of these places who applied for registration, transfer, correction of entries/change of name, or reactivation beginning December 2, 2008 will also not find their names in Comelec’s search facility. They may call their Comelec office to ask about the status of their registration.
