Israel is a country that has always fascinated and intrigued tourists with its unique charm and mystery. With the increasing number of Filipino communities in the country, particularly those working in the healthcare and domestic service industry, overseas Pinoys are among the most politically engaged immigrants in Israel. Many of them are eager to know if they are eligible to vote in the coming elections. To check your eligibility, look for your name on the list of certified overseas voters (CLOV) on the websites of the Philippine Foreign Posts.
The Philippine Embassy in Israel has already made the list of overseas voters available to our kababayans as our country prepares for the upcoming elections, which will utilize the most recent list of certified overseas voters (CLOV). This document can also be used to estimate the number of registered voters. Read on!
The Philippine Embassy in Tel Aviv began gearing up for the upcoming midterm elections by conducting a Hearing of the Resident Election Registration Board (RERB).
This important event took place on 17th July 2023, starting at 2:00 PM local time, at the Philippine Embassy premises.
The primary agenda was to review and discuss the applications for overseas voting that have been submitted to this Post between 1st April and 30th June 2023.
Anyone who wished to raise objections to any of the applications was encouraged to file their opposition in writing.
Such opposition should be addressed to the RERB and can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for filing any such opposition was on 10th July 2023. The Embassy appreciates the active involvement of the community in ensuring a transparent and reliable electoral process.
List of Registered Overseas Filipino Voters in Israel
As the Philippines gears up for its upcoming midterm elections, the conversation has intensified among Filipinos both at home and abroad.
For those residing in other countries like Israel, understanding the overseas voting system is crucial for a seamless election experience.
One of the first steps in this process is verifying your eligibility to vote by checking the Certified List of Overseas Voters (CLOV) via the Philippine Embassy’s website. However, as of this writing, the latest CLOV is not yet available online.
Thankfully, checking this list is a straightforward task. Various resources related to Overseas Absentee Voting (OAV) are also available on this website.
Moreover, Philippine diplomatic missions are committed to assisting their citizens.
They provide essential information on the voting process and can help you navigate the complexities of overseas voting.
The Philippine embassy is a reliable source for the most current information, reachable either through their website or by a direct phone call.
Before you cast your vote in the Philippine national elections from Israel—or any other foreign country—ensure your name appears on the relevant CLOV to confirm your eligibility.
How to Find Your Name in List of Absentee Voters in Israel
- Go to the website where the Philippine Embassy in Israel has posted the Registered Overseas Voters List. This list is sorted alphabetically by surnames for easy browsing.
- Find the PDF file that matches the initial of your surname and click it open. The list is segmented into various PDF files based on the alphabet of last names.
- Thoroughly review the list to locate your name. If you spot it, great news! You are qualified to vote in the imminent elections.
If your name is included on the list, it signifies that you’ve successfully enrolled for overseas voting and are eligible to partake in the pivotal decisions of the forthcoming COMELEC national elections.
If you don’t see your name, there’s no need for concern! It merely indicates that you won’t be able to vote this time around. However, you can prepare for and anticipate future elections.
