Inmate Wilberto Molina licks his ballot paper ahead of a referendum in Bayamon penitentiary 
Inmate Wilberto Molina licks his ballot paper ahead of a referendum in Bayamon penitentiary August 17, 2012. Voters in the U.S. territory will go to the polls on Sunday to consider two Constitutional amendments. One would shrink the legislature to 56 seats from 78 and the other would grant local judges the ability to deny bail to suspects accused of certain violent crimes. Puerto Rico's Constitution contains an absolute right to bail, and when bail is set high, defendants routinely ask for reconsideration - requests that are often transferred to other judges and then granted. The referendums are unique in that they do not cut along well-worn political divisions in Puerto Rico, where the major parties are defined by their support for pursuing U.S. statehood or remaining a self-governing U.S. commonwealth.
