Overseas Voters Registration

October 19, 2015

Total Time: 30 minutes

If you haven't registered for overseas voting in Singapore, you still have nine more (working) days to do so! And you don't even have to file for a full-day leave.

1. From the embassy gate, go straight to the farthest end of the compound, and enter the door on the left.

2. You will be told to sit on the chairs, and be asked to move along as the queue moves. You will be given a clipboard with the registration form and a pen. If you don't have a photocopy of your passport and IC, an OVR officer will photocopy it for you, while you wait on your seat.

3. When you reach the first seat in front, you will be asked by the next free OVR officer to get processed.

4. Submit the filled out form and photocopies. Get your picture taken (mag-make up na habang nakapila!), your thumbprints and signature.

5. That's it! You are registered!

Some time last week I read that we have hit the most number of overseas voters who registered for next year's elections. I'd like to think this is an effect of the efficient registration process that the OVR offices are doing, so good job to the Philippine Embassy in Singapore! The OVR office was full of applicants but it only took me EXACTLY 30 minutes. (I timed it!)
