How to Vote at the PCG Dubai Office for the Philippine Elections

We recently dropped by the PCG office to cast our votes for this upcoming Philippine National Elections. For overseas Filipino workers, our voting schedule started last April 9 and will end this May 9. The month-long voting gives us time to plan our days off or time off from work to visit the Consulate in Al Qusais.

We have to say that voting is very easy, especially if there’s no queue in the office. We encourage all certfied voters to cast your votes and make it count. Schedule of voting is from

  • 9 April to 8 May 2016 – 9am to 9pm
  • 9 May 2016 – am to 1pm
