Guam - The Guam Election Commission's board of directors met this evening, and among the items up for discussion concerns raised by the U.S. Department of Justice and how the GEC violated the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act, which was passed by Congress in 2009 and is effective in the Decision 2010 General Election. 

MOVE establishes standards for federal ballots for military and overseas voters and includes a requirement that these ballots be mailed 45 days prior to a federal election.  It also allows a state to request a waiver of the 45-day requirement if the state can show an alternative program that assures voting opportunities for military and overseas voters.

The board will meet again this Wednesday.
