Guam – Guam – With the primary elections only 53 days away, the Guam Election Commission has finalized the order for ballot placement for prospective candidates determining who gets the coveted top spot in their respective races.

 

The democratic chairman and republican vice chairman drew names on Friday to determine the ballot placement for the upcoming senatorial elections. It is often said that the top spot on the ballot is coveted because people are more likely to vote for the first name they see. This year’s process was a bit different from previous years. Instead of having the candidates draw for themselves, a representative from GEC drew names instead.

 

Here’s a look at the democratic ballot placement for the 2016 elections.

 

1. Telena C. Nelson

 

2. Joe S. San Agustin

 

3. Nerissa B. Underwood

 

4. Regine B. Lee

 

5. Thomas C.  Ada

 

6. Dennis G. Rodriguez Jr.

 

7. Tina Rose Muna-Barnes

 

8. Armando S. Dominguez

 

9. Frank B. Aguon Jr.

 

10. Judith T. Won Pat

 

11. Fred E. Bordallo Jr.

 

12. Victor A. Gaza

 

13. Jermaine Alerta

 

14. Benjamin J.F. Cruz

 

15. Mike San Nicolas

 

16. Rory J. Respicio

 

17. Therese M. Terlaje

 

Heres the full ballot placement for the republican senatorial race:

 

1. Wil Castro

 

2. Barry L. Mead

 

3. James V. Espaldon

 

4. Vicente A. Ada

 

5. Amanda Blas

 

6. Mary C. Torres

 

7. Jose A. San Agustin

 

8. Tommy Morrison

 

9. Benito Servino

 

10. Brant T. McCreadie

 

11. Albert J. Balajadia

 

12. Chris Duenas

 

13. Eric M. Palacios

 

14. Fernando B. Esteves

 

15. Louise Borja Muna

 

16. Ellery M Paz

 

17. Frank F. Blas Jr.

Non-Partisan Candidates (Public Auditor)

1. Doris Flores-Brooks

2. Doreen T. Crisostomo

3. Zanaida T. Asuncion

Democrat Delegate

1. Madeline Z. Bordallo

2. Tony Babauta

Republican Delegate

1. Margaret G. Metcalf

2. Felix P. Camacho

 

The new process took a more subdued approach than the 2014 election but the importance remains. Both top spots in 2014, senator Frank Aguon Jr. And Senator Mary Torres, won seats in the legislature that year.

Meanwhile, GEC commissioners approved all but one candidate. Republican senatorial candidate Romeo Carlos was disqualified from this year’s race because his legal name is Karl Gross, but the name he is using for candidacy is Romeo Carlos. A similar argument was made against Carlos in 2014, however GEC commissioners at that time approved his candidacy. Unlike this year, commissioners decided to reject his candidacy.
