Rep. Stacey Plaskett

Delegate for the Virgin Islands’s At-Large District

Plaskett, a Democrat, is the delegate from the Virgin Islands and has served since Jan 6, 2015. Plaskett is next up for reelection in 2018.

Because the Virgin Islands is a territory of the United States, and not a state, its representative in the House of Representatives is a delegate with limited voting privileges — Plaskett can vote in committee but not on the House floor, including not on the final passage of bills. Delegates have a marginalized role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.
