Vote Early, Vote Safely, Vote Carrión

Senatorial Candidate Samuel Carrión reminds residents that the location for early voting has moved to Sunny Isle Shopping Center’s interior mall, near the former site of the movie theatre.


Registered voters can cast their ballots from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily through October 25th, 2020.


“It’s important that the community knows that the Board of Elections has moved early voting to this new location,” Mr. Carrión said. “You will not be going to vote in the same place where you went to register. Please call me directly if you have any questions or need any assistance.”


The Candidate noted the significance of voter turnout this election year.


“We are in a period of economic, health, and social crisis,” Mr. Carrión said. “We need more compassionate, innovative and independent vision to move these islands forward. As a father of four children in our public schools and the caretaker of elderly relatives, I know, first hand, the difficulties our families are experiencing and I am prepared to offer solutions. As someone who has worked in the non-profit, government, and business sectors, I know how to form the partnerships necessary to improve St. Croix’s quality of life. We can’t elect the same candidates and expect different results. Your vote is very important.”

Sam Carrion says status quo not serving St. Croix Urges citizens to register to vote prior to October 3 deadline

St. Croix – Senatorial Candidate Samuel Carrion urges all unregistered voters to let their voices be heard in the upcoming November Elections.

The Virgin Islands is struggling right now with crime, healthcare and many other pressing issues and voting gives citizens the power to shape our government and the policies we want to see implemented in our community, Mr. Carrion said.

“It’s important that all Virgin Islanders participate,” he said “Voting is our political power as citizens. Don’t give up your power!”

Mr. Carrion said he was working with a group of volunteers that would assist anyone who needed help with the process or who felt that they may need translation services to complete their registration. Contact Mr. Carrion at 340-227- 2266.

“Call us and we will do our best to assist,” the Candidate said.

Mr. Carrion, who has long been very active in the community, said he was running for office in order to play a bigger role in addressing the issues most important to Virgin Islands families.

“People have begun to lose hope, but I truly believe we can and must do better,” he said.

His own dissatisfaction with the status quo inspired Mr. Carrion’s bid for office.

“I am adamant about pushing for voter registration and voter participation, as we won’t get different results until we have some different representation,” he said. “I am asking for your support, so that I can do more to support you. My campaign is not about me, but about the people – your family, my family, all of us! I believe in ‘Progress for All’. Progreso para todos!”

U.S. citizens who meet Virgin Islands residency requirements can register to vote at the Board of Elections at Sunny Isle from 10 to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Voter registrations will continue through Saturday, October 3.
