Three tabulation machines likely

Guam - It's finally Super Tuesday, and if you haven't exercised your right to vote, you've got a few more hours to cast your ballot. Once 8 o'clock hits, the polls will close and precinct officials will secure the ballot boxes to prepare for their transportation to Election Central in Mangilao at the University of Guam.

And just like the primary election, only three out of the Guam Election Commission's four tabulation machines will be running tonight. According to executive director Maria Pangelinan, it appears Tabulator Number #1 otherwise known as "Al" is still down as problems with its tabulation board are not functioning properly.

It was during the GEC's test election last night it was discovered that "Al" along with Tabulator #2 otherwise known as "Larry" were not functioning. "Larry" however is ready to go. Pangelinan said, "One of them had a total motherboard out and so that was some thing that needed more parts 0433 the other one, there was just some parts that were repaired."

For the most part, Pangelinan says things went smoothly earlier today - with the exception of what she called a minor problem where a ballot box was padlocked on the wrong side.

That incident occurred in Yigo's Precinct 19-b. It resulted in voters having to place their partisan ballots in the non-partisan ballot box.
