In light of the further tightening of restrictions announced by Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero on Thursday, the Guam Election Commission has announced the suspension of in-office absentee voting.

Because of the social distancing required by COVD-19, GEC has been allowing in-office absentee voting, or early voting, at its GCC headquarters.

The early voting was supposed to continue this week from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 7 pm with the Saturday schedule eliminated.

And then starting next week, because of the declaration of PCOR-1, the early voting schedule was further cut from 9 am to 5 pm only and from Monday to Friday only.

But with yesterday’s further tightening of restrictions, GEC announced late last night that it would be canceling all early voting altogether until further notice.
