If you can't find your name from the official list, you may send an inquiry to the Philippine Embassy Singapore at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to provide your complete name and birthday. As conveyed to me by the Embassy staff, the COMELEC website is not updated.
Take note that those who are registered overseas voters but failed to vote during the 2007 and 2010 elections have been delisted to the Certified List of Overseas Absentee Voters or CLOAV.
Registered overseas voters may cast their votes from April 13, 2013 to May 13, 2013. Voting starts from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM with extended timings below.
April 13 (first day) - starts from 8:00 AM
May 13 (last day) - starts from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM
WHERE TO VOTE?
Overseas voters need to proceed to the Philippine Embassy located at 20 Nassim Road, Singapore 258395. Nearest MRT is at Orchard MRT. You may take a cab in front of Lucky Plaza for those who are lazy to walk.
WHAT TO BRING?
Voters need to present their Philippine Passport, work pass (work permit/S-Pass/E-Pass), NRIC (for Singapore Permanent Residents)or seaman's book if you're a seafarer.
COVERAGE OF ELECTION
Voters can only vote up to twelve (12) senators and one (1) Party-List Representative. Only voters in the Philippines can cast their votes on local positions like Mayor, Vice-Mayor, etc.
The embassy is encouraging voters to exercise their democratic right of suffrage and to avoid last-minute voting.
