As such, Filipinos in Indonesia are also among those considered as one of the most politically active in the world. As a result, many of them are eager to find out if they are able to vote in the elections in 2022. To begin, go to the Philippine Foreign posts websites and search for your name on the list of certified overseas voters.
As the Philippines prepares for elections, the Philippine missions in Indonesia have already made the voters’ list available to our kababayans. The most recent list of certified overseas voters (CLOV) will be used in the National and Local Elections. This document might be used to determine the number of Filipino voters in the country.

Question: What if I’m not on the list, can I still vote?

The COMELEC made the announcement in an official statement: “Preparation and Posting of Certified List of Overseas Absentee Voters. – The Commission shall prepare the Certified List of Overseas Absentee Voters within one hundred twenty (120) days before every election, and furnish within the same period copies thereof to the appropriate embassies, consulates, and other foreign service establishments, which shall post the same in their bulletin boards within ten (10) days from receipt thereof.”
Reminders When Voting During PH Elections
The government values people’ votes because they allow Filipinos from all over the world to engage in their homeland’s political and social affairs. The ideal candidate will be able to deal with the country’s current situation while simultaneously conveying a positive image of Filipinos worldwide.
Remember To Vote Wisely
Voters should consider the candidates’ principles and personality traits when choosing a leader. These will help us make an educated decision when it comes time to vote for a new president. Only those with inspirational ideas and bright vision for the people and the country should be considered for leadership roles. Examine the candidates’ policies to see if they make an attempt to improve the lives of Filipinos in other countries.
The Importance of Overseas Voting
There is a lot riding on the next elections. Furthermore, the significance of votes cast by Filipinos living abroad cannot be emphasized. Over a million Filipinos have left the country to live or work in foreign countries. Their earnings contribute to the Philippines’ economic growth.
Despite the country’s small Filipino population, Filipinos in Jakarta, Manado, and other locations are united by ties to their homeland, families, and shared experiences of being abroad for decades or more.
Unlike in other countries, Filipinos in Indonesia are mainly skilled professionals. They mainly work in advertising and teaching English in international schools.
Because the majority of these people are breadwinners, they have a voice in how their families govern their homes. As a result, every vote cast by a Filipino residing abroad is significant; ensure that yours is included.
As Election Day approaches, we only have a few weeks to prepare for the new leaders who will steer our country in a more positive direction.
Many people are astonished by the number of people who have shown their ability to lead the country, as well as the existence of dubious candidates claiming to be “the one” – but isn’t this true of every election?
As a result, your vote will be important in electing a president with the abilities and experience necessary to lead the country through these trying times.
It would be ideal to have a leader who can solve the country’s current problems while simultaneously displaying a positive image to the rest of the globe.
If the country is to achieve its objectives, it will require leaders who are devoted to democracy and freedom. It is critical that when we choose the leaders for future elections, we all work together to strengthen the country. Let us use our collective strength, as demonstrated by our votes, to improve our home country, the Philippines, regardless of where we are in the world.
