Message from the Election Commissioner:
This webpage is for every eligible voter who would like to know the candidates running for the gubernatorial and senatorial positions in upcoming Elections. Further to help you have easy access to all information regarding elections held in the State of Yap. We hope that by uploading this webpage it would further help those of us that are living abroad and may be out of touch on the current happenings on Elections to be held in Yap State..
In regards to those living abroad, in September 2012, a report was submitted by Fr. Francis X. Hezel and Dr. Michael J. Levin at the request of the FSM National Government. The report was the first assessment of FSM migrants living abroad and presented the findings and conclusions of the survey of the FSM Migrant Population in the U.S. mainland, Guam, Hawaii, and Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas islands. This report shows that the size of the FSM population living abroad, as counted in this survey, was 49,840. This total included those who moved from the FSM and children born to them in their new homes. The distribution of the migrant population among the sites surveyed was as follows: Guam 13,558; CNMI 4,286: Hawaii 7,948; and US mainland 24,048. According to the data survey, Yapese migrants represent 15%. Accordingly, I believe this website is an appropriate way to keep all Yapese living abroad and their counterparts on Yap informed on all Election matters.
Remember that it is your right to vote and with that right you have the responsibility to make sure that your vote is cast for the betterment of our State and our People. Therefore, I encourage all eligible voters to participate in the democratic process. On Election Day, visit the polls to vote. Make your vote count.
"YOUR ONE VOTE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE."
