Official Results of the 2020 Plebiscite in Puerto Rico

On December 31st, 2020, the official results of the 2020 status vote were posted on the official State Elections Commission (CEEPUR) website.

In all, there were 1,248,176 votes cast in the plebiscite.

• 655,505 votes, or 52.52%, were pro-statehood “Yes” votes.
• 592,671, or 47.48%, were “No” votes, which represented any political status except for statehood

This is a clear majority; the “Yes” votes won. More voters selected statehood in the plebiscite than voted for pro-statehood Governor Pedro Pierluisi, who assumed office in early January. In fact, the numbers indicate that some voters voted against the pro-statehood governor but still chose statehood for Puerto Rico.
