CHRISTIANSTED — The Virgin Islands Board of Elections meeting scheduled for this morning was postponed after Minority Caucus leader Jevon O.A. Williams requested it due to inclement weather caused by Beryl.

The request by Williams, R–St. Croix, was sent Sunday evening by email to Supervisor of Elections Caroline Fawkes and Board of Elections members. Fawkes announced postponement early Monday morning.

“This was the right decision out of respect for the communities we serve and out of an abundance of caution,” said Williams. “The last thing we wanted was for the Board of Elections meeting to be a distraction.”

Monday’s meeting was overshadowed by irregularities as members were given the agenda with less than one business day’s notice.

The Minority Caucus consists of Williams, Robert “Max” Schanfarber, R–St. Thomas, and Harriet
Mercer, R–St. Thomas.
