Rep. Madeleine Bordallo

Delegate for Guam’s At-Large District

Bordallo, a Democrat, is the delegate from Guam and has served since Jan 7, 2003. Bordallo is next up for reelection in 2018.

Because Guam is a territory of the United States, and not a state, its representative in the House of Representatives is a delegate with limited voting privileges — Bordallo can vote in committee but not on the House floor, including not on the final passage of bills. Delegates have a marginalized role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.
