Overseas Absentee Voters

Under Republic Act No 9189, also known as “The Overseas Absentee Voting Act of 2003”, all citizens of the Philippines abroad, not otherwise disqualified by law, at least 18 years of age on the day of the election, and who are registered overseas absentee voters with approved application to vote in absentia, may vote for Senators and Party-List Representatives.

For this purpose, all qualified Filipinos citizens not registered as voters under Republic Act No 8189, otherwise known as “The Voters Registration Act of 1996” (the system of continuing registration), shall file an application for registration while those who are already registered under the said Act shall file an application for certification.

For the purposes of the May 13, 2013 elections, the filing of applications for registration/certification and transfer of registration records shall be filed at the Philippine Embassy or other designated registration areas from November 2, 2011 to October 31, 2012.
