The Governor of Saipan (CNMI), Eloy S. Inos, has declared Friday, November 21, 2014, as a one-off legal non-working public holiday in Saipan, on account of the need, once again, to hold a gubernatorial runoff election on that date.
As per the aforementioned announcement, "Pursuant to 1 CMC Section 6508, if an election is held on a day other than a Saturday or Sunday, the Election Day shall be a legal holiday within the Commonwealth or in the senatorial or election district. Therefore, please be advised that Friday, Nov. 21, 2014 is hereby designated as a legal holiday in the CNMI".
A few years ago (18-Nov-2009), Saipan's Commonwealth Election Commission Board had announced that the date of the runoff election on Monday, November 23, 2009, had also been declared a non-working public holiday. No mention was made this time if Friday, November 21, 2014, would also be a dry day in Saipan, with an alcohol ban in effect during polling stations' opening hours.
