Guam - Shortly after the count was completed the Guam Election Commission's board met briefly to discuss how they will move forward. According to chairman Joe Mesa they will be meeting on the Labor Day holiday to go over some of the discrepancies that arose during the primary.

"Any election you got your bumps in the road. And one of the unexpected bumps we'd had was about this blank one-sided ballot and so forth. I'm disappointed in the turnout - it's the lowest we've ever had in be it a gubernatorial or just a legislature [race], but it was not to many contests. So I can see that being a major part of it."

Representatives from the political parties have been invited to attend as the GEC will immediately begin reviewing every single ballot that was counted. They will also count the write-in votes and go over the 80 provisional ballots. The results at the earliest will be certified ten days after the primary or by September 9. Monday's meeting starts at 10 o'clock in the morning.
