Merirei Media Group (and all itâ€™s subsidiaries) believes that it is our responsibility to know our rights and that itâ€™s our right to have a say. We believe that being born abroad does not make you less of a Palauan. We believe having only one Palauan parent does not make you less of a Palauan. We believe that choosing to pursue higher education and career goals off-island does not make you less of a Palauan.
Iâ€™m sure you can see where weâ€™re going with thisâ€” we believe that no one has the right to tell you that you are less of a Palauan.
That said, if youâ€™re 18 years of age or older and have verifiable Palauan parentage (meaning you can prove through passport or birth certificate that at least one of your parents is part Palauanâ€” weâ€™d like to encourage you to register to vote in the Republic of Palau. Please visit our site:www.merirei.com/vote for information of registering to vote from abroad, as well as information for how to request your absentee ballot.
Voter registration for the primary ends July 29 while registration for general election ends September 02â€” so we recommend getting your paperwork in as soon as possible.
