Comelec will restart the process of registering voters abroad in December.

In accordance with May 12, 2025, National and Local Elections (NLE), continuous registration for overseas voting will reopen in December.

According to Resolution No. 10833 of the Commission on Elections (Comelec), which was promulgated on September 7 and made public on Monday, the filing period will start on December 9, 2022, and last through September 30, 2024.

Applications may be submitted at any Post overseas, at authorized registration centers outside the Post, or at authorized registration facilities in the Philippines that have been authorized by the Comelec.

Subject to the laws governing local voter registration, an application for a transfer from post to local must be submitted to the local office of the election officer in the city, municipality, or district where the overseas voter wishes to cast their ballot in the Philippines.

All Filipino nationals who are overseas or will be during the 30-day voting period, who will be at least 18 years old on election day, and who are not otherwise barred from voting are eligible to register.

However, qualified Filipinos who reside in the country but plan to travel one month before the election may submit their applications to government organizations for designation as registration centers in the country.

In addition to registration requests, applications will be accepted for certification, record transfers, name changes resulting from marriage or legal orders, corrections to items in the voter’s registration record, reactivation, and address changes during the overseas voting registration period.

Additionally, applicants who are either overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) or Filipinos who are currently residing abroad are informed that, in addition to the field registration, mobile registration will be set up at various sites outside the Posts and will accept their applications.

Voters from other countries are permitted to cast ballots during the continuous 30-day voting period, which begins on the first day at the host country’s local time and ends on the day of the election in the Philippines.

Only one party-list organization and national positions for senators will be up for election in 2025 among overseas voters.
