Venezuela Votes

Venezuelans cast their votes Sunday on whether President Hugo Chavez's reforms will go into effect.

The BBC reported that suggested reforms include indefinitely extending Chavez's right to run for reelection, reducing the work day to six hours, putting the Central Bank in Chavez's control and reducing the voting age.

According to the New York Times, opposition groups have found a common cause in encouraging voters to vote against Chavez.

The New York Times article seemed to be more openly anti-Chavez. There was a lot more background information and most of it was negative. It was telling that the BBC reported a huge voter turnout while the New York Times focused on areas where they said turnout was low.
