Guam - With less than a month remaining until the general election, the Guam Election Commission began the process today of providing homebound service to island residents. Homebound service is for voters who cannot leave their homes due to medical or health reasons.

GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan says as of last week, the agency has received 330 homebound applications. "So today we were hoping to knock off about 30 which means for the general election we have better planning method because now we know where they're from so we can plan to be a village all day and service as many people in that village as we can," she said.

Today's homebound service covered the villages of Agat and Sinajana. And while homebound voting continues up to Election Day, Pangelinan encourages anyone who wants to avail of these services to request immediately as the GEC gets inundated by last minute calls on Election Day and may not have the time to accommodate everyone.
