Almost two weeks after the General Election, the St. Croix Board of Elections on Monday morning wrapped up counting all elements of the vote, an official said. The final tallying of votes did not change the outcome of the election or displace any of the winners, which have held their leads since electronic votes were totaled on the evening of Nov. 6, just after the polls closed for the General Election.
The board on Monday morning counted write-in votes cast on the voting machines on Election Day, said member Dodson James. That followed days of sorting, batching and counting paper ballots, absentee walk-in and mail-in ballots and provisional ballots.
“We’re basically done with everything now,” he said.
The board met during the weekend, on Saturday, to decide on and count provisional ballots.
It plans to meet again on Wednesday to certify the results, which will then be presented to Elections Supervisor John Abramson Jr.
