Philippines continues voter Registration

Filipino citizens who intend to vote in South Korea for the Philippines senatorial and party-list elections in May 2013 can now register as overseas absentee voters at the embassy.

“Although the registration period is for one year, I encourage everyone to register early and not wait until the last minute to have their names included in the roster of those eligible to vote in 2013,” said Philippines Ambassador Luis T. Cruz.

Registration will continue until Oct. 31, 2012 and is available from Monday to Friday during regular office hours, except during declared holidays.

Filipinos may also register every first and third Sunday of the month, coinciding with the special service for passport renewals in the morning.

“This will prevent potential problems associated with rushed applications,” he added.

Registrants only need to present a valid proof of Philippine citizenship, such as a passport.

Those who intend to change their voting places in 2013, such as those returning for good to the Philippines, can also have their records transferred by the Philippine Embassy.
