Clinton Declared Winner in Guam

Early on Tuesday morning, Hillary Clinton officially won the vote in the U.S. territory of Guam.

The Hill reports:

The tiny Pacific island, whose residents are American citizens, holds a general election straw poll every four years, and its results are announced hours before the polls close on the mainland.

Clinton received 71.63 percent of the vote, while Trump picked up 24.16 percent. Third-party candidate Emidio Soltysik of the Socialist Party grabbed the remaining 4.22 percent.

The poll is nonbinding, however, as Guam has no Electoral College votes. Nor are its residents allowed to vote by absentee ballot.

But the more than 30,000 voters who cast their ballot are watched closely: Guam has accurately predicted the winner in every presidential election since 1984.
