The University of the Virgin Islands invites the general public and news media to the announcement of the results of the first Virgin Islands pre-election poll conducted by the University’s Institute for Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness (ILOE) in collaboration with the Eastern Caribbean Center (ECC). The presentation is scheduled for 11 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Oct. 30, on both campuses. It will take place in the West Hall’s Neil Weiss Room on the St. Thomas Campus and in Evans Center Room 401 on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix.   

The poll was conducted following the conclusion of a UVI-hosted series of candidate forums held in October. The forums featured Virgin Islands candidates in the upcoming election for senator, delegate to congress, lieutenant governor and governor. They took place on both St. Croix and St. Thomas, with three separate evening sessions on each island.

Dr. Haldane Davies, vice president for Business Development and Innovation, and Dr. Frank Mills, interim vice provost for Research and Public Service will make the presentation of poll results.

ILOE announced that it would conduct the scientific poll and share the results with the public as the University’s election forums were drawing to a conclusion. The announced goal was to obtain a representative sampling of how the territory’s more than 44,000 registered voters feel about the candidates.
