FAQs on Overseas Voter Registration and 2025 National Level Elections

  • All citizens of the Philippines based abroad not otherwise disqualified by law
  • At least 18 years old on 12 May 2025
  • Will be in Singapore to vote during the 30-day overseas voting period from 12 April to 13 May 2025

Important: If you have previously registered as an overseas voter and voted in the 2022 Presidential and 2019 Senatorial elections (and your registration status is not deactivated), you do not need to register again.

The voting period for the 2025 national elections will run from 12 April to 13 May 2025 (a total of 30 days). Registered overseas voters are highly encouraged to vote early to avoid inconvenience.

The registration period is from 12 December 2022 to 30 September 2024. After September 2024, COMELEC will finalize the list of registered voters, in preparation for the 2025 elections.

Only registered voters included in the Certified List of Overseas Voters (CLOV) will be allowed to vote for the 2025 Philippine National Elections. The CLOV in Singapore and the CLOV of Seafarers will be posted by COMELEC on their website sometime in early 2025. Our kababayans are advised to follow the Embassy Facebook page for announcements on the release of the CLOV.

COMELEC deactivates the records of registered voters who failed to vote in at least two election cycles. The list of voters whose registration will be deactivated are found on this link. If your name is found on the list, you may apply for reactivation of your voter registration. Simply book an appointment for OV registration and bring your original passport plus one photocopy of the passport data page.

During the election period, registered voters will be required to bring their original valid Philippine passport or seafarers’ book (for seafarers). Dual citizens will also be required to bring their Identification Certificate/Order of Approval. A Voters ID is NOT required to be able to cast a vote.

The printing and distribution of the Voter’s ID has been suspended by the Commission on Elections in view of the implementation of the National ID System pursuant to RA 11055 (An Act Establishing the Philippine Identification System), which was signed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on 06 August 2018. The issuance of National ID by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is currently being rolled out in the Philippines. 

Filipinos in Singapore are highly encouraged to follow the Philippine Embassy’s FaceBook and Instagram pages, and/or visit the Embassy’s website for important announcements related to elections 2025.
