Guam – Following a very smooth ballot tabulation process at Election Central that accounted for all 58 of Guam's voting districts, wrapping-up at about 4:30 Sunday morning, the Guam Election Commission says voter turnout in yesterday's primary is the lowest of any gubernatorial primary or general election since 1974. The estimated participation by local voters was 42%.

The GEC will now reconvene on Labor Day Monday at 10am to further discuss and review the matter of one-sided printed ballots. The results at the earliest will be certified 10 days after the primary.
