Guam - The Guam Election Commission continues to review the petitions and verify thousands of signatures for the Guam-Japan Friendship Village's initiative to open a for-profit bingo at the Guam Greyhound Park. According to GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan, although it's a rather intensive process, her staff has verified about 1,800 signatures so far.

"The Commission again determines that, we need to verify that they have 4,713 registered voters who signed the petition and after we do that then the next step begins," said Pangelinan.

Meanwhile, the ballots are at the printer and although GEC reported not having enough ballotstock, Pangelinan says she is prioritizing the over 36 Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act ballots, which were sent out today. She adds BBMR has informed her that some resolution should come this week regarding the $74,000 debt it owes from the 2008 election.
