Guam- The final ballot design for the Primary Election has been approved.
Executive Director Maria Pangelinan says Guam Election Board Wednesday night approved a double sided ballot will have 3 columns to accommodate independent candidate Jonathan Diaz. It will look similar to GEC's 2008 ballot version.
She mentions there are a few more steps before the actual printing is done, but they remain on track to meet the Wednesday deadline to mail out absentee ballots. Pangelinan says they are required to send the ballots under the Uniformed and Overseas citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) 45 days prior to the Primary Election. She describes what the ballot design will look like.

“The directions are up on top, both in English and Chamorro” said Pangelinan. “And there are 3 columns. The left column will be the Democrats. The middle column are the Republicans and the third column is the Independent. So those 3 columns will run the length of the ballot.”
Pangelinan adds the back side of the ballot will have the mayoral races.
The Election Commission is also talking to disability experts to make the election process easier for those with special needs. In addition, GEC still needs to hire more precinct officials. For more information on how to apply, log on to gec.guam.gov .
