Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on Puerto Rico
August 11, 2020
For decades, elections in Puerto Rico were known for high participation rates and transparency. It was a process that many took pride in. It is unacceptable that the people of Puerto Rico, who waited in line on Sunday in the midst of a global pandemic, were denied the right to vote. Their voices must be heard. Our democracy only works when every citizen has the ability to exercise their right to vote. Every vote must count.
