American Samoa's Chief Election Officer Soliai T. Fuimaono has certified three candidates in this year's congressional race.

Soliai says the deadline to challenge candidates has expired and the three candidates are incumbent Faleomavaega Eni, Representative Muavaefa'atasi Ae Ae Jr., and Aumua Amata Coleman.

Ballots for the Delegate race will be printed over the weekend following by local absentee voting on Monday.

Local absentee voting is for qualified electors in American Samoa who will be absent from the Territory on Election Day.
