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. From April 27 to May 9, overseas voters will be able to vote in the Philippines through absentee ballot.
Question: What if I’m not on the list, can I still vote?
Answer: Everyone who has not registered to vote will be unable to participate in the coming elections.

You may vote in Norway or from elsewhere on the earth if you follow this simple registration guide.
How to Find your name in the list of overseas voters?
The list of certified overseas voters is accessible in PDF format on the website of the Philippine diplomatic mission in Norway. This list contains everything you’ll need to participate in the overseas voting process.

What if my name is not on the list of registered voters?
Unfortunately, you will be unable to vote in the Philippines’ national elections in 2022. If you want to vote in future elections, you must register to vote before the next election cycle.
I registered as an overseas absentee voter in 2013 and I was able to vote in the 2013 and 2016 National Elections but was unable to vote in 2019 National Elections. Do I still need to apply for certification to vote abroad?
Your name would appear on both the national voter list and the National Register of Overseas Voters. However, your name will be deleted from the list if you do not vote in your host nation in 2022.
I registered as an overseas voter in 2019 but I know I will be in the Philippines come May 2022. Can I vote in the 2022 elections in the Philippines?
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 Norway be released?
Within 120 days of the formal election campaign period, the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) will transmit 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 these allow Filipinos from all over the world to engage in the country’s political and social affairs. The ideal candidate will be able to effectively lead the country through its present challenges while also projecting a positive image of Filipinos worldwide.
Remember To Vote Wisely
Voters should consider the candidates’ principles and personality traits when choosing a leader. When the time comes to vote for a new president, these will assist us in making an educated decision. Only persons with compelling ideas and a clear vision for the people and the country should be selected for leadership roles. Examine the candidates’ policies to see if they make an attempt to improve the lives of Filipinos living overseas.
The Importance of Overseas Voting
There is a lot riding on the next elections. Furthermore, the importance of votes cast by Filipinos living overseas cannot be overstated. 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 small size of Norway’s Filipino population, Filipinos in Oslo and other areas of the country are bonded by their links to their homeland, families, and shared experiences of living abroad for decades or longer.
Because the majority of these people work, they have a voice in how their families are managed. As a result, every vote cast by a Filipino residing in another country counts; make sure yours is one of them.
As Election Day approaches, we only have a few weeks to prepare for the new leaders who will steer our country in a more progressive 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 critical in electing a president with the attributes and expertise required to lead the country through these hard times.
It would be excellent to have a leader who can address the country’s current problems while simultaneously displaying a positive image to the rest of the world.
To achieve its objectives, the country will require leaders who are devoted to democracy and freedom. When selecting leaders for future elections, it is critical that we all work together to strengthen the country. Let us use our collective strength, as demonstrated by our votes, to improve our home nation, the Philippines, regardless of where we are on the planet.
So, will you be able to participate in the coming elections after checking the CLOV released by your host nation? How has this procedure been for you? Were there any issues or challenges that you encountered and have you raised such issues to the Philippine diplomatic mission in your country? Let us know by leaving a comment in the section below!
