In case you don’t know your precinct number for the upcoming October 30, 2023 barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections, there’s a quick solution for that. The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) has come up with a web application that allows you to look up your precinct number.
The COMELEC Precinct Finder attempts to find and display the assigned precinct and polling center (or foreign service post if the voter is abroad) of active voters, whether registered in the Philippines or overseas. The voter database used for this online facility is updated as of the last voter registration period in January 2023.
To use the COMELEC Precinct Finder, go to https://precinctfinder.comelec.gov.ph/voter_precinct and enter your first name, middle name, last name, date of birth, province, and city or municipality. It will then show your voter information including your precinct number, polling center and voter status.
The COMELEC Precinct Finder is still a work in progress so expect some glitches and errors. With the online precinct finder, voters will no longer have to look up their names on the list of voters and they can immediately proceed to the precinct to cast their votes.
