The Voronoi-Delaunay mesh systems provide a generalization of the classical rectangular staggered meshes to unstructured meshes. In this work, it is shown how such "covolume" discretizations may be applied to div-curl systems in three dimensions. Error estimates are proved and confirmed by a numerical illustration.
