The 2022 Philippine election is set and everyone is starting to gear up for it, both the politicians and the Filipino citizens.
From the September 30 deadline, the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) has extended the voter registration from October 11 to 30. After that, you might want to check for your voter registration status, here’s how.
Checking for registration status is only ideal for new voters or for those who changed their address. If you’ve already voted in 2019, you’re all good.
Also, there’s no easily accessible database to go to to check for your status. The methods and steps we’ll show you require some sort of communication with an actual COMELEC representative, so don’t expect it to be instant. That said, let’s get started.
