#4,645 deaths from Hurricane Maria
#1,067,000 Puerto Rican votes in Florida
Elections matter. When our leaders in government don’t represent us we can be forgotten and even mistreated. The 5 million Puerto Ricans across the country have the power to change the future fate of their local communities and of their loved ones on the island by voting. This time we must take matters into our own hands. We are U.S. citizens and it’s our right.
