Tony Ada wins Decision 2010 Special Election

Guam - Motivated by a cadre of young staffers, energetic volunteers and enthusiastic managers (which helped to offset the effects of the low voter turnout), the Guam Election Commission was able to count the ballots for all 58 precincts in less than three hours for the special election to fill the senatorial vacancy in the 30th Guam Legislature. The balloting tabulation was smooth and without error, being done by hand rather than use the automated tabulators, as has been the case in recent elections.

Republican Tony Ada led throughout the election by more than double the votes of Sarah Thomas-Nededog, a Democrat.

FINAL ELECTION RESULTS (pending GEC verification)

  • Ada, Tony (45%)
  • Thomas-Nededog, Sarah (20%)
  • Sarminento, William (10%)
  • Benavente, Martin (9%)
  • Aguon, Roque (9%)
  • De Oro, Art (7%)

The results will be certified by the GEC's board of directors on Monday at noon.
