Guam - The Guam Election Commission is in receipt of requests for two individuals running as write-in candidates for the general election. Executive Director Maria Pangelinan says Romeo Carlos wrote to the GEC requesting for consideration as a write-in candidate. Carlos ran in the primary election under the Republican Ticket for the Senator. The Commission approved “Romeo Carlos” or “Carlos Romeo” as acceptable names to be counted.

Patrick Iriarte also wrote to the GEC requesting to run as a write-in candidate for the congressional race under the Independent Party. Along with his legal name, Iriarte submitted three other variations he requested to be accepted. They include “Nostradamus,” “Nostradamus of the Marianas,” and “The Man with the Golden Micronesia Islands Crusade or to usher in a new era for all of Micronesia ‘The Man with the Super Duper Golden M.I.C.'” The GEC only approved “Patrick Iriarte” as an acceptable name to be counted.

The GEC is required by law to count every write-in vote in the election.
