Guam - About a handful of voters took advantage of the first day of absentee in-office voting at the Guam Election Commission. According to GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan, this voting opportunity goes on until august 29th- a day before the primary election.

She told KUAM News, "This begins absentee voting for those people with disabilities, who will not be able to make it to the polling places on August 30 because of work or travel plans."

She adds voters also could start requesting for homebound voting today as well. Homebound voters are those who cannot leave their homes for medical or health reasons. The in-office voting takes place from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday in the GEC Conference Room.
