All registered overseas voters with active registration status (herein referred to as “active OVs”) in any Post may be allowed to vote in the embassy/consulate/post near their current places of residence or work. For this purpose, said active OVs shall manifest their intention to vote in writing before the aforesaid embassy/consulate/post concerned using this form.
Upon receipt by the embassy/consulate/post concerned of said manifestation, said active OV shall be required to present his or her passport, a valid voter’s ID, or any competent document to prove his/her identity.
The embassy/consulate/post concerned shall verify the status of registration of said active OV by communicating with COMELEC, through the Office for Overseas Voting, to determine the status of the voter and the Post where he/she has registered.
If, after verification, the status of said overseas voter is established as active, the OFOV shall forthwith issue the corresponding authority to the Special Board of Election Inspectors (“SBEI”) of the embassy/consulate/post concerned allowing said active OV to vote in the embassy/consulate/post concerned.
If said overseas voter is not a registered voter or has been deactivated, said overseas voter shall not be allowed to vote.
