The U.S. Virgin Islands’ Democratic Party announced that Hillary Clinton defeated Bernie Sanders in their Democratic caucuses on Saturday. The final results indicate that Clinton won by a substantial margin with 84.2% of the votes Sanders’ 12.2%. Party rules require that a candidate win at least 15% of the vote to receive delegates, so Clinton scored all 7 of the U.S. Virgin Islands’ delegates. While citizens of US Territories are eligible to vote in party primaries, federal law prevents them from voting in presidential elections. Clinton has promised that as president she will push for voting rights in US Territories.
