GEC discusses voting equipment bid invite

Guam - The Guam Election Commission is meeting this evening where discussions will continue on getting new voting equipment for next year's election. GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan says a draft invitation for bid has been prepared to be reviewed by commissioners tonight.

She told KUAM News, "If everything is in place, it would be good if we could have the equipment here by possibly mid-year, possibly early to mid-year, but as we go forward, the draft timeline that we put together seems like we're going carefully through the process and we're going to make sure it gets here in time for the election, ready for the election."

The GEC meanwhile will also discuss precinct alignment. The election reform law requires only 800 registered voters per precinct and according to Pangelinan, some of the 58 precincts within the 19 districts exceed that number. She adds the GEC will also take into account that increasing the precincts will require more precinct officials.
