Primary voting in Puerto Rico has been partially suspended due to a lack of ballots at voting centers, AP reports.

Why it matters: Most primaries in the U.S. have been forced to reschedule due to the coronavirus, but not because of a logistical issue. The incident has sparked calls for the territory's election commission to resign and could foreshadow more election problems to come in the territory's November general election.

What they're saying: "I have never seen on American soil something like what just has been done here in Puerto Rico. It's a just an embarrassment to our government and our people," said Pedro Pierluisi, who is running against Gov. Wanda Vázquez.

What's next: Some politicians are calling for the primaries to be fully rescheduled while others say the remaining primaries should be held on Aug. 16.

82% of voters from both parties say it is at least somewhat important to know who won the presidential election within a day or two of Election Day, yet only half expressed confidence that this will happen, according to a Pew Research Center study.

Why it matters: The 2020 election is expected to set records for the number of mail-in ballots cast due to the pandemic. Depending on the margins in key swing states, it's possible that the winner of the election will not be known until mail-in ballots are counted.
