New York – The Philippine Consulate General in New York (PCGNY) has started accepting accomplished ballots for the Philippine midterm elections on 13 April 2019, Saturday.

Postal voting is being implemented. Official Ballots and other election paraphernalia are mailed to every registered overseas absentee voter. The said voter, in turn, either mails the ballot to PCGNY or personally delivers it. A couple of voters opted to personally deliver their ballots on the first day of the elections.

PCGNY has approximately 42,040 registered voters under its jurisdiction. Overseas Absentee voting ends on 13 May 2019.

“Let’s exercise our right to shape our nation’s destiny. Please exercise your right to vote.” said Consul General Claro S. Cristobal.
