Guam - The Guam Election Commission is still searching for precinct officials to work in the November general election for Decision 2012. Executive director Maria Pangelinan says about a dozen villages still need help filling up slots.

The villages include Hagatna, Asan, Santa Rita, Talofofo, Chalan Pago, Sinajana, Barrigada, Mangilao, Tamuning, Dededo and Yigo. Pangelinan said, "And we expect that because it's a workday, maybe work schedule conflicts happen so what we're doing is besides the villages I mentioned, we're also looking for alternates even for the villages I did not mention."

Precinct official training meanwhile begins on Saturday. She adds precinct officials should expect a full days work on the general election starting at 6 in the morning up until polls close at 8 at night then up to Election Central at the University of Guam. There are 21 polling places divided into 58 precincts throughout the island. 

Precinct officials are paid $170 for their work.
