Guam - The Guam Election Commission is on the lookout for more precinct officials. Executive director Maria Pangelinan says yesterday marked the extended deadline for the Democratic Party of Guam to submit more nominees for precinct officials however she is still short in certain villages.

Pangelinan encourages those interested to apply soon, saying, "To come in and submit applications for precinct officials, they walk in or they can fax it to us as well provided they give us all the information 0036 and we'll slot them in if it's the villages where we need precinct officials."

Those interested must be a registered voter for their district, must read and write English, demonstrate math and English competencies and must not be an immediate relative of an elected official or candidate. The GEC needs a total of 290 precinct officials with 56 alternates. There are five officials for each of the 58 precincts. Pangelinan hopes to prepare a final list by July 3rd in order to allow the commissioners to ratify and approve the nominees.
