Puerto Rico Postpones Presidential Primary, Special Election
The Puerto Rico Democratic presidential primary and special election to fill the seat of former Sen. Larry Seilhamer Rodriguez will be postponed.
The elections will be postponed until April 26 in response to concerns of COVID-19.
Rodriguez resigned from Senate District 5 effective January 15, citing his desire to spend more time with family.
If the emergency caused by COVID-19 continues until April 26, the president of the State Election Commission and the president of the Democratic Party in Puerto Rico may choose an alternate date.
