Virgin Islands: constitutional convention delegates may qualify

Caribbean Net News reports: The US Virgin Islands moved one step closer to its fifth Constitutional Convention Monday with the announcement that eligible delegate candidates can obtain petitions which will enable them to appear on the ballot for the June 12, 2007, special election.

That announcement was the subject of a press conference held jointly by the University of the Virgin Islands, which is spearheading a public education project in support of the convention, and the Virgin Islands Board of Elections, which will oversee the election process. ...

In presenting his calendar of dates which will govern the election process, elections supervisor John Abramson noted the collaborative activities between his board and the University in making sure that the public is engaged and involved in the work of the convention.

Abramson presented a calendar of dates beginning with April 2, 2007, on which date the petitions become available at election offices throughout the territory and May 16, 2007, by which date all petitions must be returned to the Board of Elections. -- Caribbean Net News: The source for news throughout the Caribbean
