Venezuelans voting with their feet before Sunday's poll

Venezuelans voting with their feet before Sunday's pollMany Venezuelans have already voted in Sunday’s key regional elections — with their feet, taking a one-way bus ticket out the country convinced the vote will change nothing. In a Caracas bus terminal, Jesus Ravelo and his wife Haydee jostled in the throng to say farewell to their son Josue, following in the footsteps of his elder brother who left a week ago. The poll is seen as a key test for both President Nicolas Maduro and the opposition who failed to unseat him after months of protests in which 125 people lost their lives.
