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 type your last name to see if your information is included. Because the document is case-sensitive, double-check that your name is spelled correctly and that the field is clear of any unnecessary spaces or characters.
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 participate in the Philippine overseas absentee voting.
Question: What if I’m not on the list, can I still vote?
Answer: Anyone who has not registered to vote will be unable to vote in this election. Those who are unable to vote this year must register to vote in future elections when the current election cycle is completed. You may vote in Turkey or from anywhere else on the earth if you follow this registration process.
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 Turkey. This list contains everything you’ll need to participate in the overseas voting process.
What does it mean if my name is included in the list of Overseas Voters?

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. 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 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 Turkey 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 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 they enable Filipinos from all over the world to take part in the country’s political and social matters. The ideal candidate will be able to effectively lead the country through present issues while also portraying Filipinos in a positive light all over the world.
Remember To Vote Wisely
Voters should consider the candidates’ principles and personality traits when choosing a leader. These will aid us in making an educated choice when it comes time to pick a new president. Only those 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 in other countries.
The Importance of Overseas Voting
There is a lot riding on the next elections. Furthermore, the importance of votes cast by Filipinos living in other countries 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 fact that the Filipino population in Turkey is small, Filipinos in Istanbul and other areas of the country are linked by their links to their homeland, families, and shared experiences of living abroad for decades or longer.
They have a voice in how their families are governed because the majority of these folks are breadwinners. As a result, every vote cast by a Filipino in a foreign 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 lead our country onto a more progressive road.
Many people are astonished by the number of people who have shown their ability to lead the country, as well as the existence of dodgy 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 qualifications and experience needed to guide the country through these hard times.
A leader who can cope with the country’s current problems while simultaneously portraying a positive image to the rest of the world would be ideal.
The country will require leaders who are devoted to democracy and freedom in order to achieve its objectives. When choosing leaders for future elections, it is critical that we all work together to strengthen the country. Let us use our combined strength, as seen by our votes, to improve our home country, the Philippines, regardless of where we are on the planet.
