This Weekend, Venezuelans Vote
Sunday, October 7th, 2012
Venezuelans are voting this weekend… and it isn’t on a Tuesday.
This just in, from Al Jazeera English:
Preparations were in full swing on SATURDAY for the election that will determine who governs the country for a six-year term from 2013 to 2019.
Venezuelans crowded grocery stores and markets to stock up on food and queued to collect the national ID cards they need for voting.
Emphasis ours. But you get the point. And voter turnout is expected to be high.
Why, oh why, do we vote on Tuesday again?
