dbo:abstract
  • Elections in Puerto Rico are guaranteed by Article VI of the Constitution of Puerto Rico and the Electoral Code of Puerto Rico for the 21st Century Act. All processes are overseen and managed in whole by the Puerto Rico State Elections Commission; an autonomous agency of the executive branch of the government of Puerto Rico.There are three types of electoral processes that occur in Puerto Rico:general elections which are held every four years on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November, and where the people of Puerto Rico elect their:Governor,Resident Commissioner,members of the Legislative Assembly, including both the:Senate andHouse of Representatives,mayors, andmunicipal assemblies,referendums which occur after a law has been enacted calling for a referendum, andspecial elections which occur when a vacancy occurs on a post or for other similar matters.Citizens of the United States residing in Puerto Rico can not vote for their head of state, the President of the United States, due to the political status of Puerto Rico.The latest general election was held on November 8, 2016 which resulted in the election of Ricky Rossell√≥ as governor, Jennifer Gonz√°lez as Resident Commissioner, the member elections of the 18th Legislative Assembly of Puerto Rico (including the 26th Senate of Puerto Rico and the 30th House of Representatives of Puerto Rico), and the election of the 2017 mayors and their respective municipal assemblies.The latest referendum was held on June 11, 2017 and resulted in Puerto Ricans overwhelmingly expressing themselves in favor of statehood with 97% of the vote in favor, though there was a 23% vote turnout.
