MANILA, Philippines – Filipinos abroad can start voting for nationally elected candidates here on April 10 until May 10 when the country holds the first automated polls, an official of the Commission on Elections said Thursday.

The Comelec and the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) will coordinate for the overseas absentee voting (OAV) and the first automated OAV in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Absentee voters can only vote for president, vice president, senator and partylist to be written on the OAV ballot form measuring 14 by 4.5 inches, said Comelec Commissioner Armando Velasco, concurrent head of the committee on OAV during the joint congressional committee meeting on automated elections.
