Monday is the last day of early voting for the 2022 General Election on Nov. 8.

To date, 10,072 electors have voted territory-wide, according to the Election System of the Virgin Islands, which issued a press release Sunday night reminding voters of their last chance to vote early. The process has been seamless and with no long lines or congestion, it said.

Supervisor of Elections Caroline Fawkes encouraged voters to take advantage of this last opportunity to avoid the lines on Election Day. Voting hours have been extended to  accommodate last-minute voters, she noted. On St. Croix and St. Thomas hours are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Voting hours on St. John are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The early voting locations are: 

  • District of St. Croix Elections Office — Sunny Isle Shopping Center, Unit 26 
  • The St. Joseph Church Hospitality Lounge on St. Croix
  • District of St. Thomas-St. John Elections Office — Lockhart Gardens (upstairs from Banco Popular) 
  • Tutu Park Mall on St. Thomas (former Scotia Bank location) 
  • The Market Place Suite II on St. John

The number of electors who participated in early voting as of Sunday is as follows: St. Thomas, 4,801; St. John, 294; and St. Croix, 4,977, for a total of 10,072 voters territory-wide, according to the press release.

“Voting is the foundation stone of political action,” said Fawkes, quoting the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
