If you are a Filipino resident in Laos and need assistance with the overseas voting procedure or validating your information on the CLOV, please contact the country’s embassy.

Use the fast shortcut provided in the next section to validate your voter’s information from the list.
Tip: To prevent having to navigate through a long list of names, use CTRL + F. On the file, there will be a search box where you may input your last name to see if your information is there. Because the document is case-sensitive, double-check that your name is accurately spelled and that there are no extra spaces or characters in the field.
If your name appears on the country’s list of certified overseas voters, you will be entitled to vote in the Philippine presidential elections in 2022. Filipino voters from other nations will be able to participate in the national elections from April 27 to May 9 from their host country.
Question: What if I’m not on the list, can I still vote?
Answer: Anyone who has not yet registered to vote will be unable to vote in the election. Those who are unable to vote will be required to register when the current election cycle closes. By following this guide, you may vote in Laos or from anywhere in the world.
How to Find your name in the list of overseas voters?
The Philippines’ diplomatic post in Laos maintains a website with a PDF list of the country’s registered voters. This list includes everything you’ll need to take part in the overseas voting procedure.

Your name will be added to both the national voter list and the National Register of Overseas Voters. Your name will be deleted from the list if you do not vote in your host nation in 2022.

Yes, but you must also file a Letter of Request for Registration Transfer to the COMELEC-OFOV from your host country’s embassy or consulate in Manila.
When will the list of certified absentee voters in Laos be released?
Within 120 days of the formal election campaign period, the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) will provide a list of confirmed overseas voters to various diplomatic embassies across the world.
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’s votes because they allow Filipinos from all over the world to participate in their country’s political affairs. The ideal candidate will be able to deal with the country’s current situation while simultaneously projecting a positive image of Filipinos across the world.
Remember To Vote Wisely
When choosing a leader, voters should consider the candidates’ ideals and personality traits. When it comes time to vote for a new president, we will be able to make an educated decision because of these. Only those with timely platforms and a clear vision for the people and the country should be considered for leadership posts. Examine the candidates’ policies to see if they, too, want to improve the lives of Filipinos in other countries.
The Importance of Overseas Voting
There will be a lot riding on the coming election. Furthermore, the importance of votes cast by Filipinos residing in other countries cannot be overstated. Millions of Filipinos have emigrated to live or work in other nations. Their revenues help to drive the Philippine economy forward.
Despite the country’s small Filipino population, Filipinos in Port Moresby and other parts of the country are bound together by links to their homeland, families, and similar experiences of living abroad for decades or more.
Because the majority of these people are breadwinners, they have a voice in how their families manage their businesses. As a result, every vote cast by a Filipino residing abroad matters; make sure yours is among them.
We just have a few weeks till Election Day to get ready for the new leaders who will steer our country in a more progressive direction.
Many people are surprised by the number of people who have proved 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 who has the abilities and experience necessary to lead the country through these difficult times.
It would be ideal to have a leader who can deal with the country’s current problems while simultaneously displaying a positive image to the rest of the globe. This will not only affect the image of overseas Filipinos but even the entire Filipino people as a whole – and what they can offer the rest of the world.
To achieve its objectives, the country will require leaders who are devoted to democracy and freedom. When future leaders are chosen, it is critical that we all work together to create the country. Let us use our collective strength, as demonstrated by our votes, to improve our home country, the Philippines, no matter where we are in the world.

What steps were taken to ensure that the verification process was reviewed and led by the Philippine diplomatic presence in Laos?
