San Juan, Puerto Rico - Election night not only decided a new president, but it also may have added another state.
A 51st state? Maybe. Puerto Ricans have voted and 61 percent have voted for statehood. On the otherhand, 33 percent wanted to be sovereign free.
President Obama has already said he supports the will of the people, but in the end Congress would have to approve the non-binding referendum before the carribean island can officially become a state.
As of now the island is a U.S. territory. The people who live there are U.S. citizens, but they cannnot vote in presidential elections.
