Nearly 2000 registered Filipino voters abroad might not be able to vote this election, Commission on Election (COMELEC) said.

COMELEC Office for Overseas Voting Director Sonia Bea Wee-Lozada said that this is due to the heightened restrictions in countries where there is resurgence in COVID-19 cases and other recorded disruptions.

Voting is suspended in Baghdad, Iraq and Tripoli. In China, voting is affected by the lockdown due to the increasing cases of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Philippine Embassy in Singapore is happy to announce that the turnout of voters in Singapore is significantly high after 11 days of voting while Hongkong reports a 26% voting turnout.
In total, there are 1, 697, 215 registered overseas voters according to COMELEC.
