While few states have embraced the idea of holding elections during the weekend, many U.S. territories and protectorates do. Voters participating in the primary election being held in the U.S. Virgin Islands on Saturday will basically be going through the motions. The incumbent, Donna Christensen, is unopposed in the Democratic primary and there are no other candidates running for other political parties. She appears a shoe-in for re-election.
Last weekend in Guam, Rep. Madeleine Bordallo won the Democratic primary for non-voting delegate. Bordallo, a former lieutenant governor of the territory, defeated newcomer Jonathan Diaz. Bordallo is also unopposed in the general election.
As part of our Wiki the Vote project, our citizen-editors have been tracking all the races and building profiles of many of the candidates. We'll have more on the winners Wednesday (including the challengers' occupations), so stay tuned then. In the meantime, if you know something about any of the races listed above, or any race in the country, please post it for your fellow citizens to read: Find your state at the Wiki The Vote homepage, select a candidate or incumbent and click "edit." It's easy, and you can always ask one of our staff editors for help.
