You will be eligible to vote in the Philippine presidential elections in 2022 if your name appears on the country’s list of certified overseas voters. The overseas voting period will begin from April 27 to May 9.
Question: What if I’m not on the list, can I still vote?
Answer: The right to vote will be denied to anyone who has not registered for the upcoming elections. Those who are unable to vote in this election must register to vote in future elections once the current cycle ends. With the aid of this guide, you may register to vote in Timor Leste or anywhere else on the globe.
How to Find your name in the list of overseas voters?
The list of registered voters is available in PDF format on the Philippine diplomatic mission’s website in Timor Leste. Everything you’ll need to participate in the overseas voting procedure is on this list.
What does it mean if my name is included in the list of Overseas Voters?
This indicates that you have registered to vote and are eligible to vote in the upcoming elections.
What if my name is not on the list of registered voters?
Unfortunately, you will be unable to vote in the national elections in the Philippines in 2022. You must register to vote before the following election cycle if you wish to vote in future elections.
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?
Both the national voter list and the National Register of Overseas Voters would include your name. However, if you do not vote in your host country in 2022, your name will be removed from the list.
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 submit a Letter of Request for Registration Transfer to the COMELEC-OFOV from the embassy or consulate of your host nation in Manila.
When will the list of certified absentee voters in Timor Leste be released?
The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) will provide a list of certified overseas voters to various foreign missions throughout the world within 120 days of the official election campaign period.
The COMELEC announced 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 individuals to engage in political and educational choices in their country. The ideal candidate will be able to deal with the country’s current condition while also projecting a favorable image of Filipinos in other countries.
Remember To Vote Wisely
When choosing a political leader, voters should evaluate the candidates’ values and personality attributes. These will aid us in making an informed judgment when it comes time to elect a new president. Only individuals with outstanding goals and intentions should be considered for leadership roles. Check to see whether the candidate’s program includes plans to improve the lives of Filipinos residing in other countries.
The Importance of Overseas Voting
There is a lot riding on the coming national elections. Furthermore, the importance of votes cast by Filipino residents living abroad cannot be overemphasized. Over a million Filipinos have left the country to live or work in foreign countries. Their earnings contribute to the country’s economic growth.
Despite being a small Filipino community outside of the Philippines, Filipinos in Timor Leste are connected by their ties to the nation, families, and shared experiences of living abroad – some for decades or perhaps, more.
These folks have authority over their families’ domestic decisions since most are breadwinners. As a result, every vote cast by a Filipino living abroad counts; so make sure yours does, too!
As Election Day approaches, we only have a limited time to prepare for the new leaders who will change the course of our country.
Many people are surprised by the number of people who have proved their potential to lead the country, as well as the existence of questionable others claiming to be “the one” – but then, isn’t that true of every election?
As a result, your vote will be critical in electing a president with the skills and experience needed to lead the country through these difficult times.
A leader who could deal with the country’s current situation while still portraying a favorable image in the international community would be ideal.
Leaders who are committed to democracy and freedom are critical to achieving the country’s goals. When we pick the leaders for future elections, it is vital that we all work together to build the country. Let us utilize our collective strength, expressed via our votes, to make our home nation, the Philippines, a better place, regardless of where we are in the globe.
Will you be allowed to vote in the next elections now that the certified list of overseas voters has been released? How was the verification procedure carried out under the supervision and guidance of the Philippine diplomatic mission in Timor Leste? Do you have any advice for Filipinos who are considering voting in this year’s national elections?
