Guam - The Guam Election Commission should know by tomorrow or Wednesday just how many total people have registered to vote for the general election.  GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan said, "This is my first set of elections and I was hoping to break the 50,000 mark, and that's where we're at right now."

And it looks like she might have met that goal, as preliminary figures show 50,500 people have registered.  In the meantime, the GEC has exceeded its count for the primary for the number of people who voted before the election. As of today 675 people voted through in-office voting, 125 for off-island or absentee ballots and UOCAVA votes and 153 from homebound voting.

The GEC board meets this Wednesday at 5:31pm.
