Precinct officials yet to be paid

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan informed her board last night that close to 290 precinct officials who worked during the primary election have not been paid yet. A total of $49,000 is owed.

She said, "One of the things is the work was done September 1 and it is now September 25, so it's 25 days after work. So we need to hurry up and pay them."

Additionally, Pangelinan told commissioners that she has inquired with the Bureau of Budget & Management Research in the past few weeks in releasing close to $100,000 in reserves to pay for primary election expenses. She further noted that with the search for more precinct officials for the November general election, it is unacceptable that those who worked the long hours of the primary election have not been paid yet.

Meanwhile voter registration has been extended from September 30 to October 16.
