Guam - The Guam Election Commission's board of directors is currently meeting in executive session to discuss the latest legal challenge. Before that, GEC board chairman John Taitano swore-in member and former senator Martha Ruth to another two-year term.

While there had been some discussion on whether other board members' terms had already expired during a previous meeting, the issue wasn't further discussed.  GEC Executive Director John Blas also confirmed that eight of fifteen individuals registered to vote on Guam and in the CNMI voted in November's Decision 2010 General Election.

Meanwhile the Commission won't have to worry about being evicted at the end of the month, as the GEC will enter into a lease agreement with its current landlord, the GCIC Building.
