GEC's budget request will buy supplies, voting booths

Guam - The Guam Election Commission approved its budget request last week that calls for more money than the last fiscal year. Executive director Maria Pangelinan said, "We are looking at $1.5 million for Fiscal Year 2016. The budget will cover the primary election for 2016 and it will also cover the purchase of supplies for both the primary and general (election)."

Part of the budget increase is due to the need to purchase 70 more voting booths and privacy curtains. Pangelinan says last fiscal year, the GEC actually requested for $1.1 million but received $1.3 million due to the Hay implementation. She adds the budget request does not take into account initiatives, referendums or legislative submissions.
