ST. CROIX — In November, residents territory-wide will cast ballots for would-be members of the upcoming 34th Legislature, and the VI Board of Elections wants to make sure that as many residents as possible are registered to participate.

The latest effort will be held only on St. Croix on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at the Ingeborg Nesbitt Clinic (Frederiksted Health Center), according to the Board of Elections.

More drives are expected in the lead-up to elections territory-wide.

To register, you'll need one of the following documents: 

  • Birth Certificate or
  • Passport (United States) or
  • Military Discharge form (DD214) or
  • Naturalization Certificate

Qualified electors are encouraged to register to vote and present themselves with the required documents, B.O.E. said. 

If you need to change your address on your voter registration card, B.O.E. is advising that you walk with a copy of a WAPA bill, residential lease, deed, or rent receipt. If you got married or divorced, walk with your marriage license or divorce decree to make your name change.

The Elections System of the Virgin Islands is encouraging everyone to register early, know their status and make all changes now.
