Pursuant to Virgin Islands law, Supervisor Caroline F. Fawkes announces the Casting of Lots for the positioning of names of candidates for the official General Election ballot. The Casting of Lots will be held at the Elections System offices at 5:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 29.

Office locations are:

St. Croix Elections Office at Sunny Isles Shopping Center, Unit 26

St. Thomas Elections Office at Lockhart Gardens (Upstairs from Banco Popular)

Special note: Supervisor Caroline F. Fawkes advises that “candidates should be present to pick their lot. If the candidate cannot appear to pick a lot, they can send a representative with a notarized letter as per 18 V.I.C. Section 419 attesting that they can pick the candidate’s lot. If that fails, an authorized elections official will pick the lot for the candidate.”

If there are any questions or concerns, contact the Elections System offices at 773-1021 (St. Croix Elections Office) or 774-3107 (St. Thomas Elections Office).
