The Guam Election Commission has new voting tabulators and is gearing up for the Aug. 30 Primary Election. GEC Executive Director Maria Pangelinan said the three tabulators arrived Aug. 1 and the staff started training on Monday. The Legislature in June appropriated $134,250 to buy a new ballot tabulation system and $48,500 for ballot stock and coding services. The four tabulators the election commission had were old and outdated and caused some problems during the last election in 2012.
… Election Systems & Software, based in Nebraska, provided the tabulators and has worked as a vendor with the Election Commission in the past, Pangelinan said.
The old tabulators could be sent to Saipan or Palau, which still use the systems, she said. The commission has not yet decided, she said.
