(CNN) - Barack Obama leads Hillary Clinton in Guam's Democratic presidential caucuses with votes from the largest of the island's 19 villages still to be counted, according to a Guam election official.
With 12 out of 19 villages reporting, Obama has 899 votes (53.9 percent) compared to 769 votes (46.1 percent) for Clinton.
The presidential candidates are battling for Guam's four pledged delegate votes. A total of eight delegates will be elected, each with half a vote at the Democratic National Convention in Denver this summer.
Also on the ballot Saturday was the race for chairman and vice chairman of the U.S. territory's Democratic party. The winners of that race will serve as superdelegates. According to the election official, the slate of Pilar Lujan and Jaime Paulino currently leads the slate of Joseph Artero Cameron and Arlen Bordallo. Lujan remains uncommitted in the race for president while running-mate Paulino has endorsed Obama. Both Cameron and Bordallo have endorsed Clinton. Incumbent chairman Tony Charfauros and running-mate Mary Ann Cabrera are currently in third place. Neither has endorsed a presidential candidate.
Although called “caucuses,” Saturday’s event in Guam functions more like a party-run primary. Voters cast secret ballots in polling places, as opposed to publicly aligning themselves in presidential candidate preference groups which occurs in more traditional caucuses, such as in Iowa and Nevada.
Polls closed in Guam at 6am eastern time, and vote-counting is expected to continue well into the afternoon. Guam is 14 hours ahead of eastern time.

Senior Citizen here ( 70 ) and behind you all the way!
I agree with the negativity of CNN....that's what they are best in; just watch a certain Lou Dobbs for one evening....that's all I could take.
Congratulations Obama !
Go Obama!!!!!! Paul vs Clinton !! Read about it!!!!!!
To all of you who believe that Senator Clinton will surrender over the results of Guam, you are nuts!
Let O'bum bum have Guam, better yet, let him move there!!!!
CNN can you report on Obama picking up three superdelegates today. Can you remove the picture of Rev. Wright. You posted it ad nauseam, so we get the idea. Coud you start to act like a real news network.
Obama is a great American hero,! He stands for the American people!!
My support is for the Obama family he is for all Americans!!! Thank you Barack Obama for choosing to support the country that you love so much. You are willing to stand even if it is alone to stand for what is true and accurate.
Barack Obama you remind me of the story in the bible; David against Goliath.
May our heavenly Father grant you favor with Him and with man, that all that you do propser for you and your family.
That do hurt, harm, or danger come against you.

The only reason he's winning is because of skin color? I guess it's just another example of how this society is so designed to favor minorites, right? Give it up...Hillary's going to lose because she's extremely dislikeable....
And how do you like this one – the only reason Hillary is even in the race is because she was married to Bill Clinton, which means the only reason she'll even be able to finish second is because she's a woman
Good for Him because he has been pounded by the press for the last two weeks. And that includes CNN( Surprising), ABC and FOX news( not surprising).
I heard Barack's speech in Indianapolis today...he's got his focus back!!
OBAMA ALL THE WAY
Obama girl couldn't have said it better!
Why does CNN love Hil-LIAR-y so much????? Not to worry Obama fans......he will have this in the bag by next month. I can hear the fat lady in the pant suit singin now!
Nothing to do with Guam , but lots to do with election.
What about info on Hillary's paster that is in jail for child abuse.
Is this info off limits cuz its conected to Hillary?
If this stuff was used against Obama and nobody protested, than it should be posted against Hillary
HILLARY can't even win GUAM...what a shame. She should drop out and make things easier for damocrats.
GO OBAMA !!!! ALL THE WAY......
YEA YEA AND CLINTON TOOK PENNSYLVANIA ONLY BY 9.3% OF THE VOTES. NOT EVEN DOUBLE DIGITS WHEN WHEN SHE HAD A 20 POINT LEAD IN THE BEGINNING.
God bless us rich people, huh Hillary, who is the elitist now?????
Hillary is the type of person that would ignore regular folk when she is with her rich friends.
HILLARY CLINTON – THE SMART CHOICE.
Please do not let the 3-Headed Monster(Hilary-Wright-Republicans) dictate to you who Obama really is. Before, during and after all of this Wright crap, we knew who the best candidate will be for the country.
Why on earth is CNN still going on and on and on about Reverend Wright, still the page highlight. Enough already.
