Dissenters urge authorities to review illegal changes in polling stations
A representative of Venezuela's opposition Democratic Unified Panel (MUD) explained that the register of voters was closed on April 15. Hence, the fact that some pro-government candidates running for governors have changed the places where they are going to cast their ballots is "illegal"
Bello stressed that the reported change of polling stations "is illegal."
"As many as 108 people are involved in such change, including candidates for ruling party PSUV and some people who, according to their last names, may be their relatives," the MUD representative remarked.
"We are submitting a list of citizens that we were able to contact during the audit we conducted on the voting rolls on Tuesday. Now we have decided to lodge a formal complaint with the CNE," Bello said.

The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
