Guam - Senators Tina Rose Muna Barnes and Frank Blas, Jr. have introduced a bill that would require a non-binding straw poll question on political status be included on next year's general election ballot.

If enacted into law, voters would be asked whether their preferred political status for Guam is Free Association, Independence or Statehood.

According to Senator Barnes, she supports the Chamorro-only vote but "listening to our neighbors is the Chamorro way".
