The Supreme Court is expected this month to announce rulings on two key voting rights cases that could reshape how Americans nationwide cast ballots in federal elections.
As Puerto Rico prepares to hold its first status referendum in 14 years this November, a leading advocate for D.C. statehood said he sees strong parallels between the two jurisdictions' political situations.
