Electronic ballot counting was intended to make the process of tabulation speedy and more efficient.  However, more about a delay has been created by the machine’s inability to read write-in candidates.  Also, adiposity in some cases, voters have forgotten to shade the oval that indicates that they included a write-in candidate.   Therefore, ballots are now subject to manual review.
No announcement has been made as to how late the volunteers will stay or whether or not whether counting will be completed this evening.
OTV has been at the Ngarachemayong Cultural Center since 9:00pm providing live coverage to all of Palau on both Channels 23 and 29.
