It is not yet known if Puerto Rico will allow voters to request mail-in ballots due to COVID-19. The ACLU has sued Puerto Rico over its refusal to allow early and absentee voting during the pandemic, and the outcome of the case may determine whether or not Puerto Rico will implement no-excuse absentee voting this fall.

Do I need to wear a mask to the polls?

V. COVID-19 MAIL-IN VOTING & ABSENTEE VOTING
COVID-19 is not an accepted reason to vote absentee in Puerto Rico. However, some voters are eligible to vote absentee if they're studying outside Puerto Rico, outside Puerto Rico on active duty in the U.S. Armed Force, or working outside Puerto Rico:
