General elections were held in Guam on 5 November 1982 in order to elect the Governor, all 15 members of the Legislature and the Federal delegate to the US Congress. There was also a referendum on raising the age at which alcohol could be bought and consumed to 21.[1] The proposal was rejected by voters.[1]

Background[edit]

The elections to the Legislature and multi-member boards were run via open primary (This following the outlawing of the previous blanket primary[1]) similar to Louisiana.

Both the Public Auditor and Consolidated Commission on Utilities were required to be nonpartisan and as such candidates were not allowed to state affiliations or list them on the ballot.[2][3] In the case of the Auditor, affiliating with a party is grounds for disqualification.[2]
