08 APRIL 2022


The Philippine Consulate General in Chicago would like to inform registered Filipino overseas voters in the U.S. Midwest that mailing packets containing official ballots from the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) are being sent by mail (through USPS) to the addresses registered with COMELEC.

The packet contains the following:

  1. • an instruction manual/leaflet on the procedure for voting;
  2. • the official ballot;
  3. • a stamped return envelope; and
  4. • COMELEC-issued sticker for sealing the stamped return envelope.

The return envelopes containing the accomplished official ballot sealed with the COMELEC-issued sticker should be mailed to and received by the Consulate General on or before on 09 May 2022, 6:00 AM (CDT) which is the end of the voting period.

Voters may also opt to personally drop their return envelopes at the Consulate General at 122 S. Michigan Ave., Ste 1600, Chicago, IL 60603 within the voting period, including weekends, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (CDT) daily.

Registered voters who have changed their mailing address should notify the USPS and have your packets forwarded to the new mailing address.

The Consulate General will publish the names of voters whose mailing packets were returned to the Consulate to give the option of picking up the ballot in person before the end of the voting period.
