Guam - If you haven't registered to vote yet for the November 6 general election, you still have a few hours left to do so. Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan says all you need is a valid ID with a birth certificate, passport or naturalization certificate to register. She hopes to break the 50,000 mark.

"If you want your voice to be heard, this is your way to do it. And somebody came in this morning and they said, 'I'm here to exercise my right to vote, and I'm here to show you that I'm a good citizen,'" said Pangelinan.

You can register at your village mayor's office with the exception of Hagatna or at the GEC offices in Hagatna until 8 this evening. Meanwhile, 8pm also marks the deadline for preliminary election campaign, contributions and expenditures reports for the candidates which provides accountability for all donations during this election season.

A final report is due 20 days after the general election.
