Nov. 5, 2002 – Here are the results from the Election System of the Virgin Islands in the race for governor/lieutenant governor with all polling places tabulated. Candidates are listed in order of number of votes received.
Governor / Lieutenant Governor:
Charles W. Turnbull / Vargrave Richards, Democrat — 16,998
John de Jongh / Paul Arnold, independent — 8,221
Alicia "Chucky" Hansen /
Thomas "Eddie" Donoghue, independent — 2,663
Michael Bornn / Arnold M. Golden, Republican — 2,398
Gerard Luz James II / Maryleen Thomas, independent — 1,724
Cora Christian / George Hodge Jr., independent — 1,025
L. Williams / K. Gonzalez Jr., independent — 502
H.I. Williams / J. Marius, independent — 103
Write-ins — 50
At this stage, whether a run-off is indicated is unclear. To Turnbull's 16,998 votes, the other candidates combined plus 50 write-in votes have 16,686. In order to win outright, a candidate must have a majority, or one more than 50 percent of the votes cast. The tabulation of absentee votes will determine whether this is the case for Turnbull.
