Guam- Voter registration for the September 1 Primary Election officially ended yesterday [Wednesday].

According to Guam Election Commission (GEC) Executive Director Maria Pangelinan, staff worked over 14 hours yesterday to collect all the completed registration forms from district registrars. As of last week, the voter count was at 47, 900. However, she mentions they won’t have the final count of all registered voters until Saturday.

“We are working on Saturday” said Pangelinan. “ We will be able to generate a number and we will be able to finalize a voter list to be sent out to all the precincts.”
