Puerto Rico[edit]

The statements on the result of the 2012 referendum ("61% of voters") appear to contradict Proposed political status for Puerto Rico where it appears to show only 61% of 54% (i.e. 33% of voters) actually voting for statehood. --PeterR2 (talk) 19:04, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

That would be 61% of the second tier ballot, a UN design for referendums. Once again, for the fifth time in five decades, votes for independence from the US amount to 3-5% of the voters in Puerto Rico, this time with 80% eligibility turnout -- even after there is so much out-migration from Puerto Rico that more self-identified "Puerto Ricans" live within the continental US than within Puerto Rico itself.
