Guam - The Guam Election Commission continued its second day of the cast ballots review this morning. As we reported, at least 20 one-sided printed ballots were discovered during the primary election which prompted the GEC to conduct the review of over 21,000 ballots. While only two more one-sided ballots were found Tuesday, as of this morning, none were found in the remaining batch.

"As soon it's done, to do a complete review, the unused ballots will be reviewed and that process will go faster because we won't be looking for write-ins, and we will just see a Republican and Democrat and we'll allow them to flip, and we'll allow to review both sides of the ballot," said executive director Maria Pangelinan.

The GEC meanwhile will reconvene Thursday night where commissioners are expected to address any more issues with the primary election and get an update on provisional and absentee ballots along with this week's review process.
