Clinton Campaign Urges Voting to Help Curb Trump Threat
SAN JUAN – Hillary Clinton’s Puerto Rico campaign urged Puerto Rican voters Saturday to check ahead at which polling station they would vote Sunday to “elect the only Democratic presidential candidate able to face Republican Donald Trump.”
“The Democratic primary in Puerto Rico is crucial…to be able to realize [Clinton’s] proposals to solve the most pressing problems of Puerto Rico and the rest of the United States,” campaign spokesman Francisco Domenech said in a statement, pointing out that Clinton has the first position on the ballot.
Voters can verify their polling center for the Democratic primary on the State Election Commission’s website and this link, which lists the 432 schools throughout the island that will open at 8 a.m. Sunday.
Clinton needs only 70 delegates to secure the presidential nomination. Sixty delegates are at stake in Sunday’s primary, apart from the seven to be awarded in the U.S. Virgin Islands primary Saturday.
