The Guam Election Commission will begin removing inactive voters next month in line with public law, reducing current voter registration numbers of more than 51,000 down to about 46,000. Local law requires the cancellation of inactive voters’ registration after voters fail to participate in the two most recent general elections, in this case the 2014 and 2016 general elections. Guam Election Commission Executive Director Maria Pangelinan said there are approximately 5,318 names of voters on the current list that will be purged by Feb. 24.
The names of inactive voters were published last week Tuesday and can also be found on the GEC website at www.gec.guam.gov.
Voters now have less than a month until the February deadline. GEC officials recommend voters go to the commission’s office to officially register again and remain listed for the upcoming 2018 general election. The commission will begin purging remaining names after the Feb. 24 deadline.
