Guam - While the Guam Election Commission works to find new precinct officials for the general election, it is also in the process of trying to pay the hundreds of others who worked in the primary election. Executive director Maria Pangelinan says she is working with DOA's Division of Accounts to ensure every precinct official has a vendor number which is needed before any check is cut.

"Now we're down to a few and as soon as those vendor numbers are established and we have vendor numbers for all officials, then the checks can be process so we're hoping that can happen in the next week or so," she told KUAM News.

There were a total of 290 precinct officials from the primary election who each will get paid $350. She is also working on paying the 21 poll maintenance workers along with the 8 telephone operators and 9 tabulators who worked on Election Day. She does however note the checks are ready for the 25 district registrars who worked at the mayors offices for two weeks before the election who get a stipend between $400 and $500.
