Optimism high on Election Day in Southern Guam

Posted: Updated:

It was a beautiful day for an election down south. We saw a slow but steady pace of voters showing up at the polls, from Talofofo, to Inarajan, down to Malesso, Umatac, and Santa Rita.  The village of Agat was our final stop, and by that time the traditional supporters' tents were in full operation. Each of the gubernatorial camps were represented, as well as several senatorial candidates.

When asked how they thought the election was going around lunchtime, friendly and hospitable neighbors said, "Good, very good. Lotta crowd, People are so enthusiastic, so we're doing good."

Another affectionately shared, pointing to a sign of their candidate, "This is my rooster, I've been following this team for a long time. How's it going so far the campaign? I think so good. It's just that you know it's a different area, before it was up here and I was just new down here in this area."

"It's gonna be a very exciting day for all. History's gonna be made for sure. So the campaign is going pretty well? The campaigns doing great, change is definitely coming," another offered. As for the pace and intensity of today's voting, one resident projected, "It's gonna pick up soon. People are still at work, but later on it's gonna pick up, we know we're gonna see a lot of excitement here soon."

No question, it was building.
