Guam - Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan says she's open to election reform and is willing to answer any questions lawmakers may have. "It is needed," she said. "There were some quirks that need to be updated in terms of the law and maybe with another election passed maybe there's still a little bit fine tuning to the Election Reform Bill."

For example, she hopes such legislation could address the challenges the GEC experienced relative to hiring precinct officials and the possibility of increasing their monetary compensation for the long hours required of such position. The GEC meanwhile will be meeting Thursday to address several of the administrative issues and complaints filed last week regarding the general election.
