800 Have Already Cast Their Votes; Election Just Over 2 Weeks Away


Guam – More than 800 voters have cast their ballots for the upcoming Primary Elections through in-office voting.

With a steady flow of voters Guam Election Commission Executive Director John Blas Wednesday said he expects the number to be near 900 by Thursday.
