Guam - The Guam Election Commission is another step closer to purchasing new election equipment. According to GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan, during Wednesday's GEC meeting, commissioners reviewed those vendors who submitted interest to provide federally certified equipment to the island.

"The four statements of interests were received and discussed last night, so based on those statements of interest, the commission has directed us to prepare an invitation for bid. So those will be prepared, and two will be prepared for their review," he said.

The vendors include Hart Intercivic, Unisyn Voting Solutions, Dominion Voting Systems and GEC's long-time vendor Election Systems & Software. She says the IFB will be for central tabulation machines and precinct counters. She says by next week, the GEC hopes to complete all the specifications of its desired equipment for review by commissioners chair and vice chairman in time for its next meeting in November.
