According to the Comelec in an advisory, any Filipino citizen who is not yet a registered voter may apply for registration, provided they are:

  • At least 18 years old on the day of the national and local elections.
  • A resident of the Philippines for at least one year and in the place where he or she proposes to vote for at least six months preceding the elections.
  • Not disqualified by law.

Meanwhile, upon registration, registrants would only need to bring valid identification documents, among the following:

  • PhilSys National ID card;
  • Postal ID card;
  • PWD ID Card:
  • student’s ID card or library card, signed by the school authority;
  • Senior citizen’s ID card
  • LTO driver’s license/student permit

  • Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) License

  • Barangay Identification/Certification with photo
  • Any other government-issued valid IDs

Comelec, however, reminded that cedulas (community tax certificate), PNP clearance, and employee IDs will not be accepted.

“In the absence of any of the above-mentioned identification documents, the applicant may be identified under oath by any registered voter of the precinct where they intend to be registered or by any of their relatives within the 4th civil degree of consanguinity or affinity,” said Comelec.

“No registered voter or relative shall be allowed to identify more than three applicants,” it added.
