    'Never in my life had I seen this': Puerto Rico to delay primaries amid election chaos due to missing ballots

    The elections commission in Puerto Rico suspended the primaries on the island on Sunday afternoon amid historic electoral chaos, after more than half the 110 precincts on the island did not receive voting materials and were forced to remain closed.

    “Never in my life had I seen this. I was born in 1952 and I’ve always voted and I had never seen this,” said Frances Maldonado, a voter who stood in line at La Piedad from Carolina. “They’re waiting for the order to be signed, for them to officially close the school because the ballots never arrived.”

    “It is the result of Rivera Schatz and the NPP’s coup. Under the new electoral law, they fired all the vice presidents of the elections commission exactly one month ago,” Puerto Rican Senator Eduardo Bhatia told the local newspaper El Nuevo Día.
