How To Find Online Your Precinct Before Election Day

As part of the Commission on Election's (Comelec) continuing registration program, it has made a way for you to find your precinct online. The data they have is based on Comelec’s Field Data officer’s submissions. It is a good time to verify now where your precinct is, so you could act upon it.

Here’s how. Fire up your favorite web browser (mine, by the way, is Safari 4), and then go visit Comelec’s website.

You will find yourself looking at this:

Simply fill up the form - enter your first name, middle name and last name, and date of birth in the appropriate spaces. And then click "Find Now" then your done!
Tips for Using PRECINCT FINDER:

        1. Fill in all NAME fields completely as you indicated in your Application Form for registration.
        2. Do not type just your MIDDLE INITIAL if you indicated your complete MIDDLE NAME during registration.
        3. In case encoding errors may have been committed by your local COMELEC office:

                a. If your name contains a JR, SR, II, III, IV, etc., try several variations of typing your name, as follows:
  • in the FIRST NAME field after your first name, such as JUAN JR.
  • in the LAST NAME field after your last name, such as DELA CRUZ JR.
  • with a period, such as JR.
  • without a period, such as JR
  • with a comma and period, Such as JUAN, JR. or JUAN JR.,
  • with two (or three) spaces in between, such as JUAN  JR. or JUAN   JR.
  • a combination of the above-mentioned variations.
If your name contains MA. or MARIA, try both variations in the FIRST NAME field.
