How to Find Your Polling Precinct Online

Only few days are left before the Philippines’ big day for the year 2010. The 2010 Elections will be the most intense election that will occur in this country because it is the event where political titans will clash. The Filipino people will cast their votes with their thought on a better future and the solution to the grave problem that plague the nation.

The coming election is also the first automated elections and the COMELEC brags that the 2010 elections will be the fastest and most efficient election in the nation’s history. Because of automation, numerous polling precincts were combined and made into a cluster. Thus, the old precinct that the voter had grown familiar in the past elections may not be the precinct that he/she will go to in May 10.

COMELEC made a way for people who are always online to find their precinct for the 2010 Elections. Finding the precinct is done through COMELEC’s precinct finder.

Upon reaching COMELEC’s precinct finder path, you will see this form:

COMELEC's Precinct Finder


To find your precinct, all you have to do is to input the necessary information in their respective fields. Be sure that you placed the correct information before clicking the “Find Now” button. Voila! Your precinct number will come out in the screen.

If your precinct did not come out or that an error occurred, it is possible that COMELEC made so encoding errors especially your name have Jr, I, II, or Ma. (abbreviated form of Maria). A solution for this is you type your name with Jr. in different variations. You could place “Jr” after your first name. Or place it after the surname. You could also remove the period after “Jr” or replace with comma. It is just trial and error until the precinct finder releases your polling precinct on-screen.

If you still have problems, then I suggest that you go visit you municipal or city COMELEC office and find your precinct in their master list.

  2. Malaking tulong nga ito. Kaso marami ang nagrereklamo kasi hindi lumalabas yung precinct nila at nag e error.

    Ibig sabihin ba nun wala ang name nila sa COMELEC database? That's a big problem.

  4. You are welcome Jules. However, I just discovered that my precinct in the master list provided by COMELEC in our hometown is different from the precinct that was given to me by this precinct finder.

    It is confusing. I guess that it is better to look at the master list in COMELEC's office in your hometown. It is better that way.
