Filipinos in Japan and have registered to vote for the 2022 Philippine National Elections can check if they’re certified to vote by visiting the website of the Philippine Embassy in Tokyo. Our embassy has listed the list of absentee voters for the upcoming elections.
So if you are a Filipino overseas worker in Japan who has registered before, you will be able to see your name from this official list. You can download the PDF list from the link below – this comes from the official website of the embassy.
UPDATE: Currently, the Philippine Embassy in Tokyo has not yet posted the certified list of absentee voters (overseas voters), so please stay tuned. As per PH law, COMELEC will release the list of registered voters at least 120 days before the national election dates. Once COMELEC releases the list of names, they will forward it to the Philippine embassies, consulates, and foreign service establishments. We will keep you posted once this update is released.
