More than 60 of the island’s 110 precincts opened following a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that stated a second round of voting would take place at centres that never opened on Aug. 9 or did not remain open the required eight hours

The ruling permanently left out voters like Eldy Correa, a 67-year-old retiree who went to her voting centre in the southwest town of Cabo Rojo three times last Sunday and desisted only to find out later that it opened late.“They took away our right to vote,” she said, adding that she was upset with the president of the elections commission despite his apologies. “Sorry for what? That doesn’t resolve anything.

Meanwhile, three candidates are running for the main opposition Popular Democratic Party, which sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General William Barr asking that his department investigate the debacle. Puerto Rico Sen. Eduardo Bhatia is running against Isabela Mayor Carlos Delgado and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, known for her public spats with U.S. President Donald Trump.
