Closing time, soon we will know officially, some signs…

August 15, 2004

Chavez’ campaign command center is empty. Foreign Reporters and international observers are all in the Coordinadora’s Headquarters. Members of Chavez’ campaign command have visited the private TV stations they have not visited in almost six years. Only two people from the Government have claimed victory, both were part of the failed Comando Ayacucho and excluded from Comando Maisanta. The Coordinadora has said they will give out projections after the CNE amkes an announcement. You be the judge of what is happening…

Anatomy of a line

August 15, 2004


It all began back here, almost a mile back, some decided to get some reading done, because the line was so big



Very peaceful smiles all over, many brought chairs, hats, reading material, this is the final lap, around the bend



and you are at the door with only 200 voters ahead, these friends I made at the line were happy with their blue fingers, while this guy was making sure he pushed his correct choice in the machine.

Done Deal

Carter and Gaviria are telling voters to stay in line that the polls will be opened as long as people are in line. But the Chavistas are blocking people from voting. In one state three voting centers have been closed for three hours by the Chavistas. The CD met with Carter and Gaviria and they made an announcement that polls could be open all night if necessary. Thus, it is tension time, the goal is close, call your friends in line and tell them to hang in there!!!

With the slow lines inching along faster now that the fingerprint machines are only used after people have voted, the concern become whether the opposition will reach the required 3.75 million votes. At this time all of the problems have been such that we are not close. In one hour night will set in and with cops in their headquarters many may decide to leave the long lines and go home for safety. Where my vote was cast, mine was like number 1200 in a school with 3800 voters it will get to 1900 but it is wor se in other sections. The opposition always said the fingerprint nachines should not be used. The Government insisted. One hundred million dollars were spent in making life difficult for voters without reason. That is not the role of an Electoral Board. Politically, it woukd be very unstable to beat Chavez handily and not reach 3.7 million.
