Guam - It's going to be a long night tomorrow for the Guam Election Commission, which will be handcounting tomorrow's ballots.  The agency is trying to reconcile invoices from the consultant for their electronic tabulating machines which won't be completed by tomorrow.

According to GEC Executive Director John Blas, he expects the first round of results to be released just before 10 Saturday night, with completion by around 3am Saturday.  "What's going to drive that first release of the unofficial results will be based on how quickly precinct officials are able to accurately clear form their reconciliation stations and then bring their ballots over to tabulations," Blas said.

The Commission is expecting voter turnout to be about 25%. Polls open tomorrow at 7 in the morning and close at 8pm. Your six senatorial candidates hoping to fill the one vacancy in the legislature are Sarah Thomas Nededog, Martin Benavente, Art De Oro, Tony Ada, William Sarmiento and Roque Aguon.
