10 November 2006 update

The Guam Election Commission's certified the Gubernatorial General Election results declaring the Republican team of incumbent governor Felix Camacho and Dr. Mike Cruz as victors. The opposition team of Robert Underwood and Frank Aguon, Jr. plans to contest the Commission's decision not to include 504 over votes (ballots cast for both candidates) when determining the total number of votes cast. If the overvotes are counted, a Tuesday 21 November runoff election would be required as no candidate would have received a majority of the vote.

The Organic Act of Guam, 48 U. S. C. 1422, provides, inter alia, that [i]f no [slate of] candidates [for Governor and Lieutenant Governor of Guam] receive[s] a majority of the votes cast in any election, . . . a runoff election shall be held.


8 November 2006 update

The Gubnatorial race shows the Camacho/Cruz team with 48.8% of the votes to the Underwood/Aguon team with 46.69%. Since neither team gained the required 50%+1 amount of votes (as is required by Guam law to be declared the winner of a gubernatorial race), the situation will be considered by the Guam Election Commisssion's board of directors. A runoff election has been projected, but unconfirmed.)

On 10 November 2006 the Guam Election Commission's certified the Gubernatorial General Election results declaring the Republican team of incumbent governor Felix Camacho and Dr. Mike Cruz as victors. The opposition team of Robert Underwood and Frank Aguon, Jr. is contesting the Commission's decision not to include 504 over votes (ballots cast for both candidates) when determining the total number of votes cast. On 30 November the Guam Supreme Court heard the oral arguments. If the overvotes are counted, a runoff election would be required since no candidate would have received the majority of the vote. The runoff was originally scheduled for Tuesday 21 November. On 12 December the Supreme Court of Guam decided that the results of the 2 September 2006 Primary Election will stand. In their ruling, the Justices decided that the challengers failed to prove that problems affected the outcome.
 
On 19 December 2006 the Supreme Court of Guam turned down the Underwood/Aguon team's legal challenge stating "In order to determine whether a gubernatorial slate has been elected by a majority of the votes cast, as such phrase is used in the Organic Act of Guam, only expressions of will or choice, or final selections of an officeholder, may be properly included in the total number of votes cast". Hence, the overvotes are not to be counted when computing a majority of the vote. It is not known if the Democrats will appeal to the United States Supreme Court.
