The CNE reported that voter turn out was 66.45%, despite heavy rain in many regions of the country. One voting centre had to be re-located because of the rain, and the CNE (National Electoral Council) reported that local residents had helped out with the relocation and it had not caused problems. There have been no major incidents at voting booths, and voters have been patient, calm, ordered and enthusiastic.

Voting centres remained open until 6pm or until there is no one else in the queue. At 6.30 Tibisay Lucena announced that only five voting booths, for technical reasons, had to change over to manual voting. 

At 2am the CNE made its first official results announcement.

In the last parliamentary elections in 2005 the opposition abstained and as a result pro government legislators (PSUV, PPT, PCV) hold 147 seats.
