Puerto Rico, a colony of the United States, is directly affected by elections in the US. Puerto Rico's government is also ruled by a two-party system. However, this year, a third of the electorate rejected this system, voting instead for independent candidates and the candidate of the pro-independence party. Many of these votes came from youth hoping to change the status quo, building on the momentum of the summer 2019 protests that ousted governor Roselló Nevarez.
