Puerto Rico Seeks U.S. Statehood

By Derek

In a non-binding referendum on Tuesday, Puerto Ricans showed interest in changing the island’s status from a U.S. territory to a U.S. state. In the vote, Puerto Ricans were asked two questions.

The first question asked if Puerto Rico should keep its current status as a self-governing commonwealth. The commonwealth allows Puerto Ricans living on the islands to be U.S. citizens, but they cannot vote for president. They are, however, represented by a non-voting delegate in the House of Representatives.

54% (922,374 people) said they would like the change to occur, while 46% (786,749 people) said they wanted to keep the status quo.
