I'm here at the Elections office in St. Thomas. My purpose is to verify that walk-in absentee ballots are being processed properly and courteously.

I have spoken with Ms. Venzen who affirms that no challenge is made to those who request an absentee ballot.  I have observed two people voting by walk-in absentee. Both individuals simply filled out a form and were given a paper ballot. They took it to a secluded area where they filled out the paper ballot. They returned to the central hall and deposited their ballot through a slot in a large plywood box that is sealed with two deadbolts.

Additional voters have come and followed the same procedure.

I've asked a couple voters about their satisfaction. They are satisfied. I'm observing that the approximate time is less than 15 mins, start to finish. There is no waiting line.


From the elections office,
