"There is no way to achieve your dreams if you do not participate," said Miranda state governor and candidate for reelection Henrique Capriles, after casting his vote at voting center Santo Tomas de Villanueva school, located in Las Mercedes, east Caracas.

However, he urged people not to vote only in the early hours of the day. "The idea is to have people casting their ballot until voting stations are closed," at 6:00 pm, he said.

At around 1 pm, he estimated turnout in Miranda state at some 30%. "I think this will increase."

"We must all get out and vote today; the future of every state in our country is at stake."

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
