The districts are:
Saint Thomas and Saint John together form a single district, while Saint Croix is a separate district. However for statistical purposes, the United States Census Bureau treats each of the three main islands (Saint Thomas, Saint John and Saint Croix) as a separate county equivalent despite the fact that there are only two districts.
The U.S. Virgin Islands legislature has 15 seats: 7 seats are for the Saint Croix District, 7 seats are for the Saint Thomas and Saint John District, and one seat is for someone who must live in Saint John.
Below is the U.S. Census Bureau's model, in which each of the 3 main islands is counted as a separate district:
