Puerto Ricans vote today

The US island territory of Puerto Rico will also go to the polls today. Among the issues voters will decide on in the Tuesday vote is the island’s relationship with the United States.

The referendum will ask residents if they want to change the relationship to the United States.

Another issue up for the vote is whether the island of four million becomes the fifty-first US state, gains independence, or “sovereign free association,” a designation of greater autonomy.

The island also is electing a governor.
