GEC Getting Ready for Tuesday’s General Election

208

Guam – The Guam Election Commission [GEC] will meet tomorrow afternoon [Thursday] at 4 pm to discuss final preparations for for next Tuesday’s General Election.

In a release, the GEC reminds the public that  In-Office (Early) Voting for the General Election is ongoing and will end on Monday, November 1. In-Office (Early) Voting is from 10 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday; and  from 9 am to 12 noon Saturday. 

All voters wishing to participate in this process are asked to bring a valid Photo I.D.

The GEC would also like to advise in-office voters that due to the high volume of  in-office voting along with the required administrative process, in-office voters may have to wait anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half before being serviced. Your patience and understanding is most appreciated.

Meanwhile, as of Wednesday afternoon over 2,750 in-office voters had cast their ballots.

In addition the GEC advises that, pursuant to GEC Board Policy, voters wishing to take advantage of Homebound Voting may apply for this service by submitting an Absentee Ballot Application to the GEC along with a map to their place of residence.

Homebound Voting is a service provided by the GEC for voters who are incapacitated, and as a result of such are not physically able to make it to their Polling Sites on Election Day. 

Also, Absentee Ballot Applications are available on the GEC website at www.gec.guam.gov or at the Commission’s office. The last day to apply for this service is Friday, October 29.
