Guam - It was earlier this week when Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan raised concerns over the recent mishaps with the mail and how it could possibly become problematic for the GEC in entering names into the voter registry and assigning correct precincts to voters.

She has since received some feedback from the US Postal Service, saying, "Yesterday morning, deputy postmaster general, Ron Stronman called us and let us know that he will be addressing the problem, he will follow up with us and he let us know that we can tell our voter registrars and our potential new registrants that they should go ahead and continue to use the village in their mailing address and they will continue to look at it until the issue is resolved."

She adds fixing the problem is important especially in mailing out informational pamphlets should there be a referendum or initiative on this year's general election ballot. In the past month, thousands of residents have been impacted by changes that have been implemented by the US Postal Service.
