Venezuelan Elections Observer NGO Says All is Well with Vote

Caracas, December 3, 2006 (— The non-partisan Venezuelan elections observer group, Ojo Electoral (Electoral Eye) issued a statement in the early afternoon today, saying that 99% of the voting centers are operating “completely normally.”

According to Ojo Electoral’s poll of voters, 70% stated that the voting process was “easy.”

The main complaint of the day was that supporters of one campaign or another were engaging in campaign activity near the voting centers, which is illegal. According to José Virtuoso who presented the report, the National Guard was already dealing with these situations.
