Ballot recount confirms Lujan as 15th senator; Moylan as AG by just 39 votes
The results from the general election, held about two-and-a-half weeks' prior, have been confirmed. And while the final legislative seat and the Guam's elected attorney general were in question due the narrow margins of victory in either race, a recount of the ballots held Wednesday evening by the Guam Election Commission confirms the outcome, without changing the rankings.
In the senatorial race, the 15th position was confirmed to returning policymaker Jesse Lujan (R), edging-out former senator Dr. Kelly Marsh-Taitano (D) by 384 votes.
And for the AG's race, the first man elected to that position will return, as Douglas Moylan's victory over incumbent Leevin Camacho was affirmed with the former winning the race by 39 votes. (The initial tally had Moylan's win being by 77 votes.)
The ballot recount was held at the Westin in Tumon and included absentee and provisional ballots.
