Guam - The checks are ready for the hundreds of individuals who worked during last week's general election. Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan says over $128,000 in total checks were printed for 290 precinct workers along with poll maintenance workers, tabulators, phone operators and district registrars. She says the checks were ready for pickup today at the GEC offices in Hagatna, which will also be open on Saturday from 9am to noon.

In the meantime, the GEC also completed the count for write-in votes on Thursday from the general election. Pangelinan says the next step for the GEC is to count all the provisional and absentee ballots before next Thursday's meeting where certification of the results is expected.
