Elections Board Finishes Provisional Ballot Counting, Waiting on Mail-In Absentees

Primary election ballot counting continued on St. Thomas-St. John Wednesday and Thursday, and while there are no changes to the winners in the gubernatorial and Senate races, the additional votes have helped to solidify the leads of several candidates.

According to Elections System officials, provisional ballots have been the focus of the past few days and since all provisionals have been counted on St. Croix, the focus has been on St. Thomas-St. John.

The next updates will come on Aug. 14, when remaining mail-in absentee votes are counted, followed by an official certification of the results by the board on Aug. 18.

With counting up to Wednesday complete, updated results are as follows:
