GEC passes resolution for new electioneering perimeters

Guam - During this Saturday's primary election voters can expect electioneering at some polling sites to be closer than others. Executive director Maria Pangelinan says the commission passed a resolution last week offering exemptions for 10 polling sites regarding the electioneering perimeters due to safety concerns.

"A good example is Oceanview Middle School, so there are two security posts, the one closest to the school within 25 feet out from that security posts people can do electioneering, I went and visited myself and there's enough room for the Republicans and Democrats," she explained.

While Guam code states any electioneering on election day must take place within 100 feet of any entrance or exit of a polling place, the exemptions allow for 25 to 50 feet instead. The places included in the resolution can be viewed on http://gec.guam.gov
