The Philippine Consulate-General in Hong Kong issues a list of Filipino voters in the nation, which can be accessed by visiting the Consulate-General in the country or checking the files listed below. Don’t miss your chance to exercise your right to vote and make your voice heard in the upcoming elections. Read on!
Filipinos in Hong Kong can benefit from the preparations made by the Philippine Consulate-General in the country for the upcoming national elections.
They can register to vote in the 2025 National Elections, update their address or other personal details on their voter record, check their voter registration status, and reactivate their voter record if it has been deactivated due to failure to vote in the past two national elections.
All they need is a valid Philippine passport, and they can visit the Philippine Embassy or Consulate General in their area to register.
With only 360 days left to register as an overseas voter, Filipinos in Hong Kong are encouraged to take advantage of these preparations and exercise their right to vote in the upcoming elections.
List of Registered Overseas Filipino Voters in Hong Kong
The Philippine diplomatic missions in Hong Kong are ready to provide assistance to registered voters who want to participate in the national elections.
To prepare for the overseas voting procedure, the first step is to check if your name is on the officially certified list of overseas voters (CLOV), which can be validated on the website of the Philippine Embassy/Consulate or in person.
However, as of now, there is no available CLOV for the upcoming elections.
Filipinos in Hong Kong are advised to check back with the PCG’s website or this post for updates soon.
If you need more information or support, contact the consular staff in the overseas posts.
The lists are ordered alphabetically and are straightforward to use, and COMELEC officers may add information or notes as needed.
To quickly find your name, use the CTRL + F shortcut and double-check that your name is properly typed and that there are no additional spaces or characters in the field.

How to Vote in Philippine Elections at the Philippine Consulate-General in Hong Kong
Step 1: Verify Your Eligibility
First, confirm that your name is listed on Hong Kong’s Certified List of Overseas Voters. This establishes that you’re permitted to vote.
Step 2: Provide Identification
Proceed to the Special Board of Election Inspectors (SBEI) and present an approved ID like your passport for identity verification.
Step 3: Acquire Your Ballot
Once confirmed, sign the electoral register and collect your voting ballot. Confirm it is in flawless condition—free from marks, tears, or smudges.
Step 4: Visit the Designated Voting Space
Move to the allocated voting area. The SBEI will supply a folder for ballot confidentiality and a pen for making selections, ensuring voting privacy.
Step 5: Diligently Complete the Ballot
Take ample time to fill out the ballot according to guidelines. Avoid making additional marks or errors.
Step 6: Thoughtfully Select Your Candidates
You’re allowed to vote for one President, one Vice President, up to twelve Senators, and one Party List. Overvoting is disallowed; choose with care.
Step 7: Hand in Your Ballot
Return to the SBEI and insert your completed ballot into the Vote Counting Machine (VCM).
Step 8: Stand By for Confirmation
Await as your voter’s receipt is generated. Refrain from removing it yourself; it acts as a record of your vote.
Step 9: Scrutinize Your Choices
Thoroughly examine your voter’s receipt to validate that all your selections are accurately recorded.
Step 10: Deposit the Receipt
If all is correct, place your voter’s receipt into the specified box for Voter’s Receipts. Note that taking photos or making copies is not permitted.
