The Virgin Islands Run-off Election poll results are in. The poll was conducted by VI Tech Stack (VITS), a University of the Virgin Islands Research and Technology Park (UVI-RTPark) company that specializes in political polling.

Traditionally, UVI facilitates multiple electoral polls up until the general elections. This year, the UVI’s Institute for Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness (ILOE) partnered with VI Tech Stack, which conducted three polls between Sept. 29 and Nov. 15. The first poll was from Sept. 29-Oct. 1; the second poll was Oct. 27-30; and the third was the run-off gubernatorial poll, Nov.13-15.

These polls were administered to random persons in the territory via online and phone interviews as well as interactive, automated phone calls. The information was then compiled, providing the electoral poll results for the gubernatorial and senatorial races and now for the gubernatorial run-off race.
