Are you a new voter in the May 2022 Presidential Election and would like to know your precinct number? You can also use the traditional method of manually verifying your precinct and sequence numbers at your local polling place. However, with the proliferation of smartphones and increased internet access, it is now possible to locate your polling precinct online. The Commission on Elections developed the COMELEC Precinct Finder in collaboration with the Department of Communication and Information Technology (DICT). A registered voter can use it to find out where they can vote and their assigned polling center or precinct for the May 9, 2022 elections.
To assist you in locating your voting precinct online, the following is our guide to using the COMELEC Precinct Finder.
How to Use COMELEC Precinct Finder

2. Complete the required information on the following page. Locate the province and municipality in which you are registered using the drop-down menu. To verify that you are not bot, check the “I am not a robot” box and then click the Search button.
3. A pop-up confirmation window will appear. If you are certain that the data you have entered is correct, click the process button. Otherwise, click the edit button to make any necessary changes.
4. You can now obtain information about your polling location and precinct number. Take a printout or a screenshot. Apart from the polling location and precinct number, the COMELEC Precinct Finder indicates whether your voting status is ACTIVE or DEACTIVATED. If your voter status is DEACTIVATED, you will be unable to vote in the May 2022 elections.
The COMELEC Precinct Finder is an extremely useful tool for Filipino voters. No longer will registered voters be required to stand in line to manually determine their polling precinct numbers. They need only to use the precinct finder to quickly ascertain their voter status and precinct information, which saves the Filipino electorate time and effort.
