Reminders for the August 25th Primary Elections


Guam – The 2018 Primary Election is now less than 24 hours away so we wanna remind voters what to expect on election day and some tips to save you time and make sure you’re following all the rules so your vote counts.

Here are some things to remember:

  • Polls open at 7 am and close at 8 pm.
  • This is a primary election so remember it is a party election. You can only vote on one side of the ballot, either democrat or rebublican. You cannot vote on both sides or cross over. If you do, your vote will not count and your ballots will go to waste.
  • No electioneering allowed within 100 feet of the gate of the precinct. Electioneering is waving or wearing signage representing any of the candidates listed on any of the ballots. This includes t-shirts, hats, fans, buttons and other visible materials
  • Make sure to bring your government issued photo ID when you vote
  • If you have not voted in the last two consecutive general elections, your name will not be on the list
  • No photos can be taken inside of the precinct. Although it might sound innocent and fund, this means selfies are NOT allowed!

Guam Election Commission Executive Director Maria Pangelinan was on News Talk K57 with Andrea Pellacani talking about statistics and numbers. There are now a total of 54,033 registered voters. All candidates must receive at least 4 percent of ballots counted. Precinct officials will be on site to assist voters with questions or concerns they may have.

“Our poll maintenance we have our precinct officials that are inside the polling rooms. We have poll maintenance workers or poll workers that will be monitoring just inside of the fence,” said Pangelinan.

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow night as we go live at 10 p.m. for your complete election coverage. We’ll be reporting right here from PNC News and will be bringing in some guests to provide some political analysis.

We’ll also hear from our reporters who will be visiting different precincts, campaign headquarters and at election central UOG field house to bring you up the minute live results. We will be here until the last vote has been counted.
