'Find Your Precinct' tool launched on GMA News Online

On election day, make sure you get to the right place to cast your vote.

GMA News Online has launched its "Find Your Precinct" service to save voters the hassle of looking for their voting precincts on election day.

This section is a mirror service of the Precinct Finder facility on the Commission on Elections (Comelec) website, which means that it contains the same data as the poll body. While the Comelec website is back up, its precinct finder feature remains down after it was defaced by hackers last March.

Voters may find their precinct details by typing in their names first, middle, and last names and their birthday.

GMA News Online's Find Your Precinct mirror service and the entire election microsite was developed by GMA New Media Inc., the technology arm of GMA Network focused on convergent applications for mobile, web and digital TV.

Ma. Martha Michaela Agcaoili, Vice President for Web and Mobile Operations of NMI, said the project is a partnership between Comelec, NMI, GMA Network, and GMA News Online.

"This will be available for the duration of the whole election period and will prove to be most useful on or before May 9," she said. —Veronica Pulumbarit/JST, GMA News
