Venezuelan Presidential Elections in London – 7 October

On Sunday October 7th 2012, the Venezuelan Presidential elections will take place around the world in order to decide who will take on the responsibility of politically leading the country for the next 6 years. If you are a Venezuelan in the UK and would like to take part in the voting, here is the lowdown on how to do so.

The streets of Venezuela’s cities have been packed, as rival presidential candidates hold some of their final rallies before Sunday’s election. Having batttled cancer for much of the last year, President Hugo Chavez is hoping to win another term in office – he has led the country since 1999. If he suceeds, he has promised to expand his socialist programmes further, which are mainly focused on Venezuela’s poor. However, his opponent, the 40-year-old Henrique Capriles, says that Chavez’s policies have left the country with a multitude of problems. He has pledged the country will be more pro-business under his leadership.

Voting will take place at the Venezuelan Consulate at: 54-56 Grafton Way, London, Greater London W1T 5DL

Hours: 6am to 6pm (GMT)

Only Venezuelans who previously registered to vote via the electoral registration process earlier in 2012 have the right to vote and ALL voters must bring their Venezuelan National Identity Document with them. Passports will NOT be accepted.
