Guam - After two of its tabulating machines were discovered to not be functioning properly during its test election Monday evening, Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan says Tabulator #1 (otherwise known as "Al") is now up and running. She says Election Systems & Software technician Jason McDonald was as the University of Guam Field House throughout the night trying to resolve the matter, and as of Tuesday morning the machine is working.

She will be conducting a test-run later this morning.  She adds Tabulator #2, (aka "Larry") is still down and will not be used for the general election.

Meanwhile, she reminds voters that the polling site for Dededo residents with last names starting with the letter "O" to "Z" are now voting at Liguan Terrance Elementary School instead of at the Astumbo Gym.
