GEC meeting will cover tabulator costs

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - The Guam Election Commission is meeting this evening where commissioners are expected to discuss concerns over the GEC's tabulation machines.

Executive director Maria Pangelinan says she has since received a response from election systems and software following its July 23 letter in which they recommended that GEC discontinue use of its current tabulation machines.

ES&S vice president for operations Adam Carbullido writers after an internal assessment, in order for the current machines to be brought to the near new condition, a complete overhaul would be required. He estimates repair cost for each machine would be around $35,000, taking into account parts, labor and testing and shipping. He adds this figure is cost prohibitive when compared to other tabulator upgrades within its product groups and hopes to work with the GEC in proffering more solutions.
