Guam - Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan says notices will be mailed to more than 7,300 voters who failed to vote in the past two general elections. The notices will inform the voter that they will be taken off the voter registry unless they re-register with the GEC. The practice is commonly known as purging. Pangelinan says the number is one of the highest she can remember as only 4,000 were purged in 2012. Along with the notice, an advertisement of all the potential purged voters will be published next Wednesday. You still have time to come to the GEC and re-register until names are officially purged on February 20.
