Local elections will be held in the Province of Marinduque on May 13, 2013 as part of the 2013 general election. Voters will select candidates for all local positions: a town mayor, vice mayor and town councilors, as well as members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, a vice-governor, a governor and a representative for the lone district of Marinduque in the House of Representatives.
For this election, a number of provincial-level officials are seeking reelection, including incumbent governorCarmencita Reyes and incumbent congressman Lord Allan Jay Velasco.

Congressional election

Incumbent Congressman Lord Allan Jay Q. Velasco
Incumbent congressman Lord Allan Jay Velasco, who was first elected in the 2010 election, is running for a second term. Although he ran under the Lakas–CMD ticket in 2010, for this election he is running under the National Unity Party (NUP). His challenger is Regina O. Reyes, the daughter of incumbent governor  Carmencita Reyes, running under the Liberal Party. Reyes, like Velasco, previously served as the Provincial Administrator of Marinduque from January to July 2011.[1]
However, Reyes was ordered disqualified by the First Division of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) over her citizenship status. In its ruling, the COMELEC cited the Citizenship Retention and Re-acquisition Act of 2003, claiming that Reyes was still an American citizen and she had failed to renounce her citizenship. In addition, the ruling notes that Reyes did not submit sufficient evidence that she had been resident in Marinduque for at least one year, citing documents which point to her term as Provincial Administrator.[2] Should the ruling be made final, votes made for Reyes will be considered spoilt.

Incumbent governor Carmencita Reyes is running for a second term, having assumed the governorship after defeating then-incumbent Jose Antonio Carrion in the 2010 election, alongside her running mate, vice governor Antonio Uy, Jr. Although she was a guest candidate of the Liberal Party the previous election, having run as a member of the party-list group Bigkis Pinoy, for this election she is running as the Liberal Party candidate. Reyes' running mate is doctor Romulo Bacorro.

Uy has since left the Liberal Party and has decided to run for governor under the NUP, the party of Congressman Velasco. However, he does not have a running mate; instead, the NUP is endorsing Melecio Go of the Nacionalista Party for the position of vice governor. Go is currently a member of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan for the province's first disrict, and was elected in 2010 as an independent.

Carrion is seeking to retake his seat after losing the previous election to Reyes. Though he ran under the Lakas–CMD ticket in 2010, for this election he is running under the banner of the Nationalist People's Coalition. His running mate is Jose Alvarez, who previously sat as a member of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan for the province's first district.
