Guam - With only a handful of hours remaining to vote in the Primary Election, the Guam Election Commission reports only receiving a few calls of minor concerns from voters and precinct officials. The GEC was initially set to meet at 3PM in the event any major problems had surfaced but it has since been cancelled. Executive Director Maria Pangelinan says some of the minor concerns include a leaking air conditioner at the Tamuning Precinct at Tamuning Elementary School along with some voters showing up to the polls but their names were not on the voter roster. As for Homebound Voting, the GEC stopped receiving requests by noon and expects to conduct its last homebound service at 7:30 tonight. Pangelinan meanwhile says none of the precincts reported voters having to wait, but adds she is hearing that voter turnout is low in certain parts of the island and that the rainy weather may have been a factor. The GEC in the meantime has doubled its phone lines from four to eight should any voter have a problem during the Primary Election. You can call the GEC at 477-9791 for more information. The GEC will meet tonight at 9pm at Election Central at the UOG Fieldhouse.
