Rep. Stacey Plaskett

Delegate from the Virgin Islands’s At-Large District, Democrat

Plaskett, a Democrat, has been the delegate from the Virgin Islands since Jan 6, 2015 (next election in 2016).

Because the Virgin Islands is a territory of the United States, and not a state, it has no senators or representatives in Congress. Instead it sends a delegate to the House of Representatives with essentially no voting privileges. Delegates have a marginal role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.
