How ready is the GEC for Super Tuesday?

Posted: Updated:

Super Tuesday is less than 24 hours away....is the Guam Election Commission ready?  The Guam Election Commission is ready for tomorrow's General Election.

Voter registration is the highest since 2002, with 55,941 voters registered to cast ballots tomorrow. GEC Executive Director Maria Pangelinan said the GEC is expecting to duplicate the 57% voter turnout Guam saw in the Primary Election. National voter turnout is usually between 30-40%, Pangelinan said.

Polls open tomorrow at 7am and close at 8pm. "Make sure you vote for one Gubernatorial team, one delegate to US Congress, 15 Senators - you can vote on both sides, Democrat or Republican or both, just make sure you vote 0-15. On the Attorney General, vote for only one AG, the Consolidated Commission on Utilities vote three, and on the Guam Education Board you can vote 0-4, judicial retention question for the judge and the justice answer yes or no," Pangelinan said.

Pangelinan also reminds voters to avoid electioneering, saying, "no campaign paraphernalia, no campaign shirts, if you accidentally wore a shirt, the precinct officials will ask you to turn it inside out," Pangelinan said. Guam law says every voter is entitled to two hours to go and vote. Pangelinan said, "For those that are working on that day - it is a workday - ask the precinct official to kindly give you an 'I voted' note. It will indicate the time you were there and have the precinct official's signature, if you need that for your employer."

Voters will also receive a sticker after they vote.
