2018 General Election Casting of Lots Set for Aug. 28

Elections System of the U.S. Virgin Islands

The Casting of Lots for the positioning of names of candidates for the official General Election Ballot will be held at the Elections System offices at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 28, according to a press release issued Thursday by Supervisor of Elections Caroline F. Fawkes.

The locations are:
St. Croix Elections Office at Sunny Isles Annex, Unit 4
St. Thomas Elections Office at Lockhart Gardens, upstairs from Banco Popular

Special note: Fawkes advises that “candidates should be present to pick their lot. If the candidate cannot appear to pick the lot, he/she can send a representative with a notarized letter as per Virgin Islands law attesting he/she can pick the candidate’s lot. If that fails, an authorized Elections official will pick the lot for the candidate.”

For more information, call the Elections System Office at 773-1021 (St. Croix) or 774-3107 (St. Thomas).
