Guam – Guam Election Commission Director Maria Pangelinan says there have been no show stoppers so far for today’s Primary Election. Precinct officials did encounter some problems at the polls throughout the day but most of them were easy to resolve.

At most of the polls precinct officials said traffic was slow but steady. 

“Actually there were people knocking on the before they opened up at 7am,” said Agana Heights Precinct Official Robert Cruz.

“It’s picking up now, and it hasn’t stopped since then,” Barrigada precinct official RT Aunu told PNC early in the afternoon. “I’m pretty sure its gonna pick up.”

Aunu said few problems were encountered in Barrigada with voters listed on the registry and coming in with photo identification on hand. Cruz said there were a couple of voters that were turned away in Agana Heights because they didn’t have their photo ID.

“They weren’t happy, but they understand” Cruz told PNC.

Precinct officials in Astumbo did encounter some problems early in the day, with voters not listed on their registry. Precinct Official Gilbert Arciga told PNC he and the other official were able to give provision ballots to voters that the Guam Election Commission confirmed were registered.
