Debt, signage, polling sites top GEC meeting

by Lannie Walker

Guam - The Guam Election Commission's board of directors has a lengthy agenda for tomorrow's meeting.  Members will discuss an array of issues ranging from a complaint about political signs and setting new parameters for the polling sites in Agat and Piti.

Members will also be discussing the debt owed to their software vendor from Decision 2008.  Electronic Systems & Software needs a commitment letter from the GEC that they will pay their debt in October.

GEC Executive Director John Blas said, "That letter will be going out sometime this week with what ES&S has to do as far as there they would feel more confident in receiving a letter of commitment from GEC with them being able to move forward in providing technical support and ballot stock for the upcoming elections."

If the debt isn't paid the GEC could be left hand-counting ballots in the primary and general election. Tomorrow's board meeting gets underway at 4 in the afternoon.
