    Kosrae At-Large Revote for Pohnpei Special Polling Place

    PALIKIR, Pohnpei—In response to a petition from one of the candidates in the March 5th, 2019 Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) National Election, the FSM National Election Office has ordered a revote of the Pohnpei Special Polling Place for the FSM Congress four-year (At-Large) seat for the State of Kosrae. This revote will take place on April 18th, 2019, at the FSM National Election Office in Palikir, Pohnpei State from 7AM to 5PM.

    The premise for the revote is that the Honorable Tony Otto, Director of the National Election Office, found sufficient evidence to support the petition’s allegation that 20 eligible voters were unable to cast their vote due to a shortage of ballots. Further, the margin of victory between Candidate Yosiwo P. George and Candidate Aren B. Palik was 10 votes.

    The revote will only be for those Kosraean voters who timely applied to vote absentee at the Pohnpei Special Polling Place prior to the March 5th, 2019 election—and those with valid voter IDs obtained prior to March 5th, 2019.

    A formal notice of the revote is available here: https://pio.gov.fm/files/Public%20Notices/NOTICE_OF_REVOTE.pdf. For any questions, please contact the FSM National Election Office at +691-320-7805.
