There are no first-order administrative divisions as defined by the United States Government, but Puerto Rico has 78 municipalities or "municipios" at the secondary order. For U.S. Census purposes, the municipalities are equivalent to a counties[1]. They are conveniently grouped into eight electoral districts, which do not possess administrative functions. In 1991, the Autonomous Municipalities of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico act was created as a strategy for the decentralizing and the improving government services to the people.

The municipalities elect a Mayor and a legislative assembly in the general elections every 4 years.

A Puerto Rican legislator has proposed a bill that would reduce to twenty the 78 municipalities currently making up the Island. The bill calls for a referendum to take place on June 13, 2010, and which would let the people decide on the matter.[2] Puerto Rico's proposed municipal consolidation
