How To Find And Verify Your Precinct Number And Polling Center Online

The national election is just a couple of days away. At this time, you should already know your precinct number and polling center as these have been made available online since last year. There are two ways on how you can check your voter's information. You can either use the Precinct Finder tool by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) or the mirror service created by GMA News Online.

In the Precinct Finder by COMELEC, just enter your name, birth of date, and the required Captcha. After clicking the search button, your voter information will pop up. These include your voting center and precinct number. It will also be shown if your registration status is active or not. However, the COMELEC website is notorious for being down. With the immense traffic it's getting these days, there's a chance that you won't be able to access the site or the precinct finder takes too long to load. If this is the case, you can use the mirror service set up by GMA News Online. At least, the service is up 99% of the time.

Here are the links to the precinct finders:
