The Elections System of the Virgin Islands announced late Monday that 11,849 Virgin Islanders cast their ballots early as of Oct. 31 — the last day of early voting — representing 30 percent of registered voters in the territory.

According to the Elections System, 5,963  early votes were cast on St. Croix, which has a 445-vote lead over St. Thomas’s 5,518. On St. John 368 votes were cast early.

Elections Supervisor Caroline Fawkes deemed the early voting process a success and thanked all those involved in its execution.
