CEBU CITY, Philippines — As of October 24, voters can now search for their precinct, or where to vote, for the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections (BSKE) online.

Six days before the barangay and youth polls will take place, the Commission on Election (Comelec) reactivated its online precinct finder.

The site allows Philippine voters from all over the world to access their voter information. These included their status – whether active or deactivated, the name of their voting center and the precinct number.

Here’s how to navigate the Online Precinct Finder, and get your voter information.

Step 2: Input All Details Asked

After accepting the Disclaimer and other terms of use, the portal will then ask you to fill in all fields. This means you will need to type your first, middle, and last names.

You will also be asked to identify your place of registration by submitting the name of the province and city or municipality where you filed your voter’s registration.

Step 3: Check Captcha & Data Privacy Notice

Once you fill in all fields, you need to do a quick captcha-test which is a standard measure to deter bot attacks and spam.

What happens if there are errors?

Comelec has since acknowledged that the Online Precinct Finder is not a perfect system. They also admitted that sometimes, the database used to run the portal may not be updated.

In this case, they advised voters to ask for assistance by emailing [email protected]. They also suggested going to the nearby election offices.

“Just have one of their family members visit the office and ask for their precinct numbers,” said lawyer Lionel Marco Castillano, director of Comelec in Central Visayas.

This October 30, over 3.3 million Cebuanos are expected to flock to voting centers again for the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections (BSKE).
