Guam - The Guam Election Commission has received an administrative complaint evidently it was filed earlier this month by a Lourdes Mendiola on behalf of her son, Clifford Wooten. The complaint states that Wooten was not allowed the vote during the 2010 General Election, despite claims that he was allowed to vote in the Primary.

Acting GEC executive director Stephanie Chargualaf presented the complaint to the board during last night's meeting. Chargualaf says the board is working on a response, as the complaint may be invalid, saying, "We found that an affidavit has not been executed or has not been turned into our office, she claimed that he was registered at the Tamuning mayor's office, we looked at the logsheet for the individual who are registrars at that office but we did not find his name on their logsheet."

In the meantime, the GEC board is scheduled reconvene their meeting next Monday, where they are expected to discuss the vacancy for the executive director position as well as select a new independent member.
