GEC removing 7,000+ names from roster

Guam - The Guam Election Commission will officially remove over 7,000 names from the voter roster this week. It was last month when the GEC published a list of voters who failed to vote in the last two general elections notifying them they would be purged. Executive director Maria Pangelinan says cancellation letters are expected to be mailed out Friday.

"That means that more people are not participating in the fundamental activity of voting as it represents democracy. It's not a very good thing, but hopefully with the upcoming 2016 elections, we're going to see excellent slate of candidates and a lot of candidates hopefully, that will push our voters to come out again to participate," she said.

Pangelinan says when the first notice was issued, only 28 voters re-registered with the GEC. You can still register to vote at the GEC offices located in the GCIC Building in Hagatna.
