SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — It will be a little while longer before final vote totals are known in Puerto Rico’s Democratic presidential primary, because the U.S. territory’s election commission has taken the day off.
The island’s Democratic Party chairman tells The Associated Press the commission will resume manually counting votes on Tuesday.
Roberto Prats says commission officials worked until nearly dawn Monday to count the results of Sunday’s primary election.
He said a final certification will likely be issued Tuesday afternoon.
Hillary Clinton won the race over Bernie Sanders. She has just over 60 percent to Sanders’ nearly 39 percent, with roughly two-thirds of the vote tallied.
Clinton is 26 delegates short of the 2,383 needed to win the nomination, according to an Associated Press count.
