In-office ballots will be processed first

Guam - Over 1,000 absentee ballots have already been cast during the in-office absentee voting period. And according to executive director Maria Pangelinan, in order to ensure a good control of the ballots, the GEC voted last week to change how they're processed.

She told KUAM News,"The instructions to the precinct officials before Thursday's (meeting last week) was to take care of the voters that come and process absentee voters as time permits but since the meeting on Thursday, I have to let precinct officials know especially the precinct leader that absentee ballots must be processed before the first voter is served."

This means that voters who show up once the polls open may have to wait depending on the time it takes to process the absentee ballots. In-office absentee voting meanwhile continues at the GEC until Friday at 5pm.
