COMELEC guidelines for voters who have yet to receive their ballots

1. Registered voters are requested to verify the inclusion of their names in the Certified List of Overseas Absentee Voters (http://www.comelec.gov.ph/oav/?r=tpl/find_registration_-_individual_search) and the List of those who failed to vote twice (http://www.comelec.gov.ph/oav/?r=tpl/oav_lists/list_of_overseas_absentee_voters_who_failed_to_vote_in_two_consecutive_national_elections)

2. If you have not yet received your ballot by mail and your name appears in the above lists, you will be able to vote by personally appearing at the Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco.
