Guam - It's been over two weeks since the primary election and precinct officials have yet to be paid. According to Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan, she is working with DOA's Division of Accounts to process the payment which should be ready by the end of the week.

"We have submitted more than half of the names of precinct officials to be processed for payment we were waiting to see if we could get all of them in at one time, but because it was taking too long for others, we went ahead and submitted the majority of them and for those who turned in vendor forms, those may receive checks possibly on Friday," he said.

Each of the 290 precinct officials who worked on the primary election will be paid $350. Pangelinan says the payments will also cover the poll maintenance workers, machine tabulators and phone operators.
