Currently, the Philippine Embassy in HK has not yet posted the certified list of absentee voters (overseas voters), so please stay tuned. As per PH law, COMELEC will release the list of registered voters at least 120 days before the national election dates. Once COMELEC releases the list of names, they will forward it to the Philippine embassies, consulates, and foreign service establishments. We will keep you posted once this update is released.
