Election hotspots are areas with election-related violence as declared by the Philippine National Police (PNP) and/or the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

PNP-declared hotspots are categorized into three:

  • Category 1: are areas which have had incidences of violence due to intense political rivalries.
  • Category 2: are areas with “serious armed threats” by “organized threat groups” . These groups may include private armies, New People’s Army, the Bangsamoro Independent Freedom Fighters, and Abu Sayyaf Group.
  • Category 3: are areas of grave concern with election-related violence involving officials vying for elected posts .
