The Committee on Election Reform is convening an Election Reform Advisory Group for the purpose of examining Guam’s election laws to craft legislation that will help to ensure elections are efficient, fair, and reliable.
“During the last three General Elections, and a couple of primaries, we have repeatedly seen a wide ranging list of allegations and legal challenges relative to questionable or improper conduct. Despite collective cries of outrage, the underlying issues have, tragically, left many with a resigned acquiescence that all our election results are suspect – and will continue to be,” said Sen. Dennis Rodriguez Jr. in a press release.
“Some fatalists have taken to considering our election process within the context of a ‘good election’ simply meaning that it was the least objectionable. It is my intention to collaboratively review our election process as a whole and to come up with a comprehensive solution,” he said.
The mission of the Task Force is to seek ways to restore public confidence by providing a detailed set of recommendations for future election reform legislation.
