Candidates for governor of Carabobo state urge people to vote
Opposition governor and candidate for reelection of Carabobo state Henrique Salas Feo and his challenger, pro-government candidate Francisco Ameliach, cast their ballot
Governor Salas Feo, accompanied by his wife and daughter went to La Salle polling station, north of Valencia, the capital of Carabobo state. After he voted, he urged people to go to the polls and ratify their wish of having a better future.
Meanwhile, pro-government candidate Francisco Ameliach, after exercising his right to vote at José Regino Peña voting center, south Valencia, asked people to go to polling stations "to exercise the sacred duty" of vote.
