The numbers are in: 886 people voted on Advance Polling Day on Friday, according to Elections Supervisor Juliette Penn.

The number was up 232 from the previous election in 2011, when 654 ballots were cast.

The Fourth District saw the largest turnout, with 134 early voters, while the Second District had the lowest turnout with 35 voters.

Every person who cast a ballot voted for both district and at-large representatives except two voters in the Ninth District, who only voted for their district rep, according to the results.

Elections officials were originally supposed to announce the results at the end of Advance Polling Day on Friday, but delays in receiving the ballots from Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke postponed the announcement, said Deputy Governor’s Office Information Officer Colene Penn.

The results for voter turnout are as follows:

• First District: 120

• Second District: 35

• Third District: 130

• Fourth District: 134

• Fifth District: 83

• Sixth District: 96

• Seventh District: 73

• Eighth District: 87

• Ninth District: 128
