Puerto Rico makes a joke out of the "referendum" and only 23% turn out to participate.

As of 5:30pET, the island's election commission (CEE in Spanish) had reported that abut 23 percent of the island's eligible voters had cast ballots, about 500,000 votes. About 97 percent of the votes were for statehood.

It was the lowest level of participation in any election in Puerto Rico since 1967.
