From: Registered Voters of Guam

We, the undersigned, dutifully request from the Honorable Senators of I Mina' Trentai Unu Na Liheslaturan Guåhan (31st Guam Legislature) to accept, introduce and vote IN FAVOR of a REFERENDUM ELECTION and to RECALL the Governor and Lt. Governor of Guam Pursuant to Sub-Chapter 4 of the Organic Act of Guam pursuant to Subsection 1422a of the Guam Code Annotated and Title 48 of the United States Code Annotated (48 U.S.C.A.) and Title 48 of the U.S. Code Service in accordance with the laws of the Unincorporated Trust Territory of Guam.

By virtue of § 1422a. Initiative, Referendum and Removal of the Guam Code Annotated: (a) The people of Guam shall have the right of initiative and referendum, to be exercised under conditions and procedures specified in the laws of Guam. (b) Any Governor, Lieutenant Governor, or member of the Legislature of Guam may be removed from office by a referendum election in which at least two-thirds of the number of persons voting for such official in the last preceding general election at which such official was elected vote in favor of a recall and in which those so voting constitute a majority of all those participating in the referendum election. The referendum election shall be initiated by the Legislature of Guam following (a) a two-thirds vote of the members of the Legislature in favor of a referendum, or (b) a petition for such a referendum to the Legislature by registered voters equal in number to at least 50 per centum of the whole number of votes cast at the last general election at which such official was elected preceding the filing of the petition.

We, the undersigned, believe that the total number of votes cast of November 2, 2010 and the recount of those votes on November 6, 2010 were not properly counted or re-counted. There is sufficient evidence that the Open Government Laws of the Territory were violated as well as the resignation of several prominent members of the Guam Election Commission. Thus, the fifty percent plus one clause as prescribed in the Organic Act of Guam is unverifiable until a REFERENDUM ELECTION is held to remedy the injustice committed by the Guam Election Commission on the Registered and Legitimate Voters of Guam.

We, the undersigned, dutifully request from the Judiciary of Guam and the U.S. District Court of Guam, to expeditiously hear Civil Case No: CV1891-10 and 10-00031 in order to have a fair judgment on the matter brought to light by the Plaintiffs and the Registered Voters of Guam. We trust that the recent recusal of one of the Justices from the case warrants immediate action upon said docket case within the Judiciary of Guam and the U.S. District Court of Guam.

We, the undersigned are 18 years of age and older, are registered voters, and residents of Guam. We would like to honor how important our vote is and do so in accordance with the laws of the Territory of Guam.

By signing this petition, we the undersigned urge and move the Senators of the 31st Guam Legislature to accept this petition on behalf of the entire voters of Guam and call for a Referendum and Removal of the current Governor and Lieutenant Governor of Guam from their elected office. We urge the Senators of the 31st Guam Legislature to use FY 2012-2013 Budget of the Guam Election Commission for said referendum.

Respectfully Submited to the Speaker of the 31st Guam Legislature and its members,

The Registered Voters of Guam
