Guam – The deadline to register to vote in the upcoming Primary Election is nearing.
August 25th is the last day an individual can register to vote in the Primary says Guam Election Commission Executive Director John Blas. The Primary will be held September 4th. To register to vote you must be a U.S. Citizen, 18 years of age, not committed under a sentence of imprisonment or confined to a mental institution, and be a Guam resident for at least 30 days according to the GEC.
Eligible individuals can register at the GEC office between the hours of 8am and 8pm or at their Mayor’s office (in all villages except Hagatna) between the hours of 4pm and 8pm. To register you will need a U.S. Passport, a certificate of U.S. Citizenship, or a Certificate of Naturalization or a certified copy of a birth certificate and Photo I.D.
Blas says 1,340 voters have already cast ballots in the Primary Election through early voting. Registered voters can vote early at the Election Commission’s office located on the 2nd floor of the GCIC building in Hagatna. Voting hours are Monday through Friday from 8am to 6pm and Saturdays from 9am to 12pm. Early voting will end September 3rd.
The Republican and Democratic Primaries are being held in conjunction and will appear on the same ballot. The GEC reminds voters that they can only vote for one party. If more than one party is selected on a ballot the entire ballot will be void.
