Guam - Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan says today was the deadline for the Democratic and Republican parties to submit their nominees for precinct officials. She says each party is tasked with providing 145 names of individuals to work on Election Day along with an appropriate number of alternatives.

"On Saturday, August 30, is the primary Tuesday, November 4 is a workday so we're anxious to see whether these precinct officials that they nominated will be working for both primary and general seeing that the general is a workday," she explained.

Pangelinan adds for those still hoping to participate as a precinct official, they can turn in an application starting tomorrow but will be carefully advised that they will be second priority to what the respective parties have already submitted. This will mark the first election where the precinct officials pay will be increased to $350 as a result of the new election reform law. The first precinct official training is on July 14.
