Puerto Ricans in unfamiliar territory as vote count delayed Associated Press. November 6, 2020.

For the first time in decades, voters across Puerto Rico are still waiting for officials to confirm the winners of some of the most high-profile races days after the U.S. territory held its general election.

Puerto Rico’s government blames the delay in results on the more than 220,000 absentee and early votes it has received, a record for officials struggling to count them. The president of Puerto Rico’s elections commission, Francisco Rosado, said he wasn’t satisfied with the job that the administrative board responsible for counting those votes is doing.

Meanwhile, dozens of workers inside a coliseum remained hunched over tables as they counted by hand thousands of ballots that machines rejected the day of the election.
