Sharp-minded central villagers make their way to the polls

Posted: Updated:

The crowd started their Super Tuesday off early in Tamuning at John F. Kennedy High School. Jessica Lizama told KUAM News the voting process was "very smooth, very easy and directions were explained very clearly."

Voters like Lizama have been keeping watch on the campaign trail, as she continued, "I just listened to what all the candidates had to say and stayed informed and the listened to what the opposition had to say about both sides."

Each one ready to mark off the candidates on their ballot. Robert Hoffman said, "It's exciting to vote. It's an interesting election." In Sinajana, the village of which Hoffman is mayor, voter turnout for today's election was off to a rather slow start. He said, "A lot of people are working so I wish it was a holiday but I do hope the people of Guam come out and exercise their right to vote."

But, the pace was a plus for voters like Peter Cruz, who said, "Everything went smoothly. Very professional and they explained the process clearly."

From parking to curbside voting then to  instructions given as you get your ballot forms, precinct officials definitely enforcing happening here at the sites and voters then getting one of a medal - a pin for voting.

Rick Camacho shared, "People working the precincts are trained and double trained. Even me as an experienced voter I make sure they are doing their jobs so I want them to read me the list and say my name and ask for the IDs and not assume things they know."

Volunteers were also on site helping voters make their way in and out. Guam police officers on hand to provide security throughout the day. Overall, a smooth day for voters in the central part of the island, as Cruz stated, "I've lived here for quite a while and just picked the person I thought to do the best job."
