Absentee Ballots Available to All Qualified Electors

Elections System of the Virgin Islands

Early Voting continues to be suspended in the St. Thomas-St. John District until further notice. The Department of Health is providing guidance on the reopening of facilities in the St. Thomas-St. John District. Additional information will be forthcoming in a Wednesday, July 15, press release. On behalf of the Elections System of the Virgin Islands (ESVI), Supervisor Caroline Fawkes is requesting voters’ patience as all of us get through this pandemic together.

Fawkes reminds voters that any qualified elector can vote by absentee ballot in the 2020 Primary and General Elections to ensure that electors are not disenfranchised by COVID-19. Absentee Ballot applications can be found on the ESVI website at www.vivote.gov. Voters are encouraged to use the election process that is best for them, but participation is key, Fawkes emphasized.
