A spike in election-themed merchandise and candidates belting their political platforms even if the campaign period hasn’t started yet can only mean one thing: The 2013 Philippine national and local elections are just months away.
And whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned voter, finding your polling place may prove to be troublesome, especially if you’re directionally challenged like us. Thankfully, the Commission on Elections or Comelec has an online precinct finder to help you overcome the initial pains of ballot-casting.
Once you’ve clicked this link to the precinct finder, the rest of the process is fairly straightforward. Simply fill out the quick form with your full name and birth date exactly as they appear on your Comelec registration form, and you’re all set.
Within seconds, you’ll be able to find out your polling center’s complete address, your voter information, and practically locate the polling center with your finger using the embedded Google Maps service. It’s really as easy as it sounds.
And with this, we wish you a pain-free May 13 experience!
