St. Thomas-St. John Election Results Final


Nov. 13, 2004 — After almost eight hours of counting mail-in absentee ballots Saturday, Board of Election Chairman Lawrence Boschulte said no changes have been made to the General Election outcome in the St. Thomas-St. John district.
Saturday's count of about 335 absentee ballots was the final tabulation of votes since the Nov.2 election. The provisional and walk-in ballots were counted earlier this week.
"I'm not expecting anything else," Boschulte said. "So the numbers should stay the same."
This year's election had been a tight race and the fates of several candidates were hinging on the absentee ballots – in the senator at-large race candidate Craig Barshinger and his opponent incumbent Sen. Almando "Rocky" Liburd, and in the senatorial race Sen. Roosevelt David, who held the seventh position, followed closely by incumbent Sen. Carlton Dowe and candidate Alvin Williams.
With the absentee, walk-in and provisional ballots counted, Barshinger picked up 335 votes while Liburd gained 416. However, Liburd still did not gain enough to cinch a win. Voters on St. Croix gave Barshinger the victory. (See "St. Croix Final Vote Clinches Barshinger Win"). Barshinger had been ahead of Liburd with a 369-vote margin in the unofficial results.
David picked up a total number of 301 votes to include provisional, walk-in and absentee votes, Dowe 320, and Williams 204. But David held his ground.
