Voting in Puerto Rico? Where can you go to vote or register to vote in Puerto Rico for elections?

We will detail where you can go to vote after explaining a bit about politics.

Before you go to vote, consider these ideas. We recommend that you vote for politicians that are financially responsible, who spend less than collected tax revenues. The United States with almost $20 trillion in debt and Puerto Rico with $72 billion in debt is extremely irresponsible. Carrying a heavy debt load is a sign of weakness, not strength. Our leaders have failed us. Do not be deceived by politicians who bribe you with the most free stuff to get elected. It is not coming out of their own pocket! All that free stuff is not free, because it eventually has to be paid for by society. Free food, free housing, free telephone service, free water, free electricity, free health care, free college, free clothes, free car, free boat, free airplane. When is it going to end? Whoever offers to bribe you with the most free stuff is in a race to the bottom. They do not exhibit characteristics of a wise leader.

Imagine yourself as a child, with your 2 parents fighting to be the most popular with you. Each one lets you have all the candy and junk food you want without limit, lets you stay up all night, play video games, watch tv and don’t make you go to school. Each parent is bribing you with more and more free stuff, competing to be your favorite. Would this be a proper way to raise and develop a healthy and productive child? Of course not! Likewise, a politician needs to act like a stern parent, saying the party, in the form of excessive spending, is over. While it may not be popular to be the one calling for an end to the overspending, it is the mature, adult-like and necessary thing to do. A wise leader, or parent, prepares you for the future, putting you in a strong position, not burdening you with unhealthy habits or an unhealthy debt load.

The process to register to vote was simple and efficient, despite the 3 registration officials not knowing English. While I was there for about 20-30 minutes, I was the only customer. With no line, it might take 10-20 minutes. Most are open from M-F 8-12, 1-4 although some do not close for lunch. They check to see that your address falls within their registration zone first. Then they enter your name and address into their computer, have you sign the electronic signature pad, get your photo taken, sign in a registration book. About 3 minutes after your photo is taken, the machine prints out your shiny new voting identification card with your picture and you are finished.

It is important to remember to bring the required identification to register to vote. You should bring your Passport, or both Birth Certificate and government ID. Bringing your state ID or Puerto Rican ID alone is not enough. When registering for a new ID, voting card, bank account, etc, it is always better to bring more documents than not enough so you can complete the task on the same visit, saving time and frustration.

You can check the link below for the voting registration office near you. The JIP Arecibo, Bayamon, Caguas, Mayaguez, 106-107 Carolina and Ponce DO NOT CLOSE AT NOON. The Puerto Rican government should publish a map of all the locations and list the GPS locations on their directory to make these easier to find.
