Find your precinct number in one page load instead of two

by Koree S. Monteloyola

 

Since the COMELEC website (http://www.comelec.gov.ph/precinctfinder/precinctfinder.aspx) is taking ages to load (probably because a lot of people are accessing the site), I tried this hack so I can instanly retrieve the voter's info in 1 page load instead of two.

The COMELEC Precinct Finder has 2 stages or page loads :

1. Voter has to input information for the following:
* F U L L N A M E = firstname, middle name & lastname
* D A T E OF B I R T H = month, day & year

2. The webpage retrieves and displays the voter's info and registration details with the Polling Place and precinct number.

Using the URL below edit/replace the dummy voter's info with your own information, follow the formats of the UPPER-CASE AND LOWER-CASE letters.

http://www.comelec.gov.ph/precinctfinder/precinctresult.aspx?firstname=JUAN&maternalname=DELA&lastname=CRUZ&bmonth=12&bday=30&byear=1979&month=December

Formats for the following values:

- firstname, maternalname, lastname = UPPER CASE LETTERS, replace spaces with %20 (ex. SAN AGUSTIN = SAN%20AGUSTIN)
- bmonth = 2 digits of birthmonth = 01-12
- bday = 2 digits of birthday = 01 - 31
- byear = 4 digits for birth year
- month = January-December (first letter should be in upper-case)

If your name has spaces, use "%20" for each space, example:

Name: JUAN DE LA CRUZ

Example URL:

http://www.comelec.gov.ph/precinctfinder/precinctresult.aspx?firstname=JUAN&maternalname=DE%20LA&lastname=CRUZ&bmonth=12&bday=30&byear=1979&month=December

If you get the "SERVICE UNAVAILABLE" message just refresh the page - click the refresh button or hit F5 to refresh.

--end--

Hope this helps!
