The 2023 Barangay and SK elections are fast approaching. Are you ready to exercise your right to vote on October 30, 2023? If you are a registered voter, you need to find out your COMELEC Precinct Number before you head to the polling station.

If the system cannot find your details, try entering your name in different ways on the online precinct finder website. Sometimes, your name may have been encoded differently, especially if it has a suffix (such as JR., SR. or III, IV) or a prefix (such as MA. or MARIA) or if it consists of more than one word.
If the result that is displayed does not match your information, you can contact the Office of the Election Officer or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for further verification.
