Guam - Last week marked the deadline for voters to register for the primary election. And according to Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan, the total registered for the Primary Election is lower than the 2010 gubernatorial election. She says while the voter roster is being completed, the GEC has 49,110 voters registered for this Saturday's election. Meanwhile it was last week we reported that volunteer voter registrars had submitted 58 affidavits of registration that were incomplete or missing proper documentation. Pangelinan says letters will be sent to those potential voters informing them to submit the proper documents. She adds should these 58 voters show up on election day and not see their name on the voter roster, they can still cast a provisional ballot which will only be counted if they submit their documents within seven days after the election.
