The Venezuelan electoral board this week forbade transmission of this political add that clearly makes allusion to the scare tactics that chavismo uses to force people to vote for them. Do not be surprised by this: that interdict is all but an open confession by the CNE that it is just the mere election ministry of the regime.
The story is quite simple: she is not voting, doing her laundry. A motor bike stops at the door and tells her she has to go and vote. He even offers a "camarade" to do the laundry and watch over the kids. When they arrive at the voting station he reminds her that she needs to vote for A, that she is in "the list" for some social benefit. Once inside, the heroine steels up and votes B anyway, remembering that the vote is secret.
Why is the CNE upset? Because the CNE HAS NOT DONE ANY INSTITUTIONAL ADVERTISING TO REASSURE THE PUBLIC THAT THE VOTE IS SECRET AS IT IS AN OBJECTIVE OF THE REGIME, TO MAKE BELIEVE THAT MISIONES RECIPIENTS AND PUBLIC VOTERS THAT DO NOT VOTE FOR CHAVEZ/MADURO WILL BE FOUND OUT.
