Guam Legislature Considers Primary Election Changes
The Legislature of Guam passed one bill and is contemplating another that will change the electoral process in the territory.
Bill 156-34, passed Friday, Ocotober 27, 2017, proposes moving the date of primary elections and changing the filing date for candidate nomination papers; while Bill 45-34 calls for the elimination of primary elections in their entirety.
If Bill 45-34 also passes and both bills are signed by the governor, whichever bill is signed second will void the one that is signed first.
