This time around it is going to be very limited, if any. Here is why.
First, as already expressed in previous post, this election fails to hold the interest other elections had. Outside of other reasons mentioned next, it is not a crucial election, its role limiting itself at modifying the speed at which chavismo will keep degrading itself and the country along. It is big bump on our road to oblivion.
Second, my life has been very complicated in the last semester. At least before when busy I could tune in Alo Ciudadano while I would do stuff at home. But once Globo went neutral last May there remained no airwave worth listening to in Venezuela, at least for the news that I try to seek. El Universal is trying to start an Internet broadcasting but this is for the very privileged few that can have a reasonably stable and fast Internet. In San Felipe............ Thus I truly do not have all the info that I require to do detailed analysis, even if I were in the mood for them. As a blogger with integrity I prefer limited exposure.
Third, being busier and less interested I have let my regular political contacts lapse some. Which does not help in mounting an election day coverage adventure of any type. The more so that I am a lone blogger with slow Internet, Skype handicapped.
Fourth, to a complicated life I must add that I had a major family loss which in addition was combined with my S.O. in ICU for 4 days. I was like shit for a the week where no post appeared. Fortunately the S.O. is now out of danger and resting at home. We did get something out of his stay in a heavy sedated situation: even though I am the political half he came out with what is going to be my favorite new political truism: "we were all wrong about Venezuela. The true nature of our country is not to be found in places like Caracas or Merida, but in sinkholes like Anaco, Moron or Tocuyito". When I digest the consequences of this moment of enlightenment I will write something about it for those who do not understand it. But for those who had the misfortune to drive through these joints you may get it already.
Thus I have decided to stay one more day in Caracas and to drive back only on Sunday morning to vote in San Felipe with the hope of finding a clear way ahead of me and make it on time to vote (I used to be able to make the trip in a little bit over three hours, now it takes 4+ hours when all is clear and some week days it has taken me 7 hours). Which means that there will not be an "election day post", or at least not one starting until at least a couple of hours after I finally make it home, at best late afternoon. Still I will have my smartphone on with Twitter so if I find or see anything interesting I will let you know when I stop at some rest area.
This being said, I will try to write some stuff tomorrow as there is plenty of lose ends left from previous posts and news. And then on to Sunday, may our dreams come true.
