GOP teams disagree on multiple ballots

Guam - It appears two gubernatorial teams have differing opinions when it comes to a proposal to use separate ballots for the upcoming Decision 2010 Primary Election.  The Republican gubernatorial team of Mike Cruz and Jim Espaldon don't believe there should be separate ballots. 

In a statement, the GOP duo said, "No one should be forced to declare their party affiliation in order to case their ballot...in spite of the benefits some might think they gain, the time to fix an election is, not 67 days before the primary."

The other Republican team, Eddie Calvo and Ray Tenorio, had suggested that the Guam Election Commission utilize two separate ballots to prevent crossover voting that would result in a spoiled ballot during the primary. 

The GEC'S board proposed utilizing three separate ballots for Republicans, Democrats and independents. 

The issue is expected to be discussed when the board meets at 4pm Thursday.
