Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Election Commission anticipates the final invoices for the special election sometime this week.  GEC Executive Director John Blas says the preliminary numbers show that the agency spent about $106,000. As for the supplemental request for the Decision 2010 Primary Election, Blas predicts that the final number should be around $125,000 since they had to hand count the ballots for the special election.

Said Blas, "A big savings was of the fact that we did not use the services provided by our off-island vendor, with respect to utilizing the tabulators."  For the time being, Blas says the GEC is still waiting on a response from its vendor before closing out its $40,000 bill for the electronic tabulators.
