In an interview with NewsTalk K57, Guam Election Commission Executive Director Maria Pangelinan said that this weekend the commission will be reaching out to more homebound voters — this time to voters who are at the quarantine facilities.

Friday was the last day for early voting and midweek numbers show that more than 11,400 have already voted ahead of Tuesday’s election.

GEC staff confirmed the early voting numbers this afternoon. It still does not include the long lines of curbside and in-office voters who were trying to beat the deadline Friday afternoon.

Commission staffers are expecting around 1200 votes to be added to that number at the end of the day.

The numbers also do not include the homebound and off-island absentee ballots.

The early voting numbers represent 20 percent of Guam’s current number of registered voters. As of Oct 15, there are 55,542 registered voters on island, according to the Guam Election Commission.

The general election is on Tuesday, November 3.
