How to get a voter's id in the Philippines

To apply or get a voter's ID in the Philippines is very easy unless you don't know what's the first thing to do. If you don't know what to bring, you might be wasting your time coming back to your home or office to get the requirement needed by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) office. So here are the steps you should do:

Step 1

Bring the needed requirements for applying a voter's id:

A valid id. It could be your birth certificate (Either NSO or Local Civil Registrar Copy), postal id, driver's license, passport id, GSIS ID, PhilHealth ID, school id, etc. You can browse a list of Philippine valid id's here. If you don't bring a valid id, the COMELEC office will not accept your voter's id application.

Here's a list of recommended valid id's required by the COMELEC Office:
  • Postal ID
  • Drivers license
  • Students ID or library card, signed by the school authority
  • Employees identification card (ID) with the signature of the employer or authorized representative
  • Senior Citizens ID
  • Passport
  • NBI/PNP clearance
  • Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) ID
  • License issued by the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC); and
  • Any other valid ID...
If you're married and both of you and your spouse will want to apply, you can bring your marriage certificate as valid ID.

Step 2

Go to the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) office. If you don't know where's the COMELEC office in your city/municipality, you can ask your neighbors or friends.

Step 3

Apply for a voter's id inside the COMELEC office. The staff will entertain you, check your valid id, and process your application.

Step 4

They will give you a voter's id application form you should fill-out correctly. You should know where you currently live. Know what street or sitio and baranggay you live. (This is very helpful for new residents)

The issuance of voter's id will take several months or even a year depending on the city/municipality.
