THE Guam Election Commission board will reconvene its meeting this evening at 6 p.m. at the commission conference room in Hagåtña.
The meeting is being held in the second floor of the GCIC building.
Among the items the board is expected to discuss is the status of the $74,000 debt owed to Nebraska Election Systems and Software from the 2008 elections.
Meanwhile, GEC Executive Director Maria Pangelinan said GEC held voter registration on Friday at the District Court of Guam and registered 17 out of the 52 newly sworn in U.S. citizens, thus increasing the number of registered voters on Guam to 47,289.
