Poll Hours: 8:00 AM-3:00 PM

The polling places shall remain open until three (3:00) o'clock in the afternoon, and will be closed at that time. Voting, however, will continue uninterruptedly until all the electors who have their number in line to vote, or are inside the polling place at the time it is closed, have voted.
It shall be the duty of every employer of a continuous operation firm in operation on the day a referendum, plebiscite or election is held, to take positive action to establish shifts that will allow the employees to go to the polls between eight (8:00) o'clock in the morning and three (3:00) o'clock in the afternoon.

Can I Register At The Polls On Election Day?

NO: Puerto Rico does not provide Same Day Voter Registration. You must register to vote by the voter registration deadline in order to vote in an election. If you miss the voter registration deadline for an election you should contact your local election office.

Can I Take Time Off For Voting? Yes

Election day is a legal holiday in Puerto Rico and most employees have the day off work. Employers running a business in operation on election day, however, must establish shifts allowing employees to go to the polls between 8am and 3pm.
