Venezuelans will head to the polls Sunday to vote in their country's presidential election, deciding on whether to keep Hugo Chavez or vote for opposition rival Henrique Capriles. While most polls indicate a clear win for Chavez, others have shown Capriles narrowing the gap. Chavez is seeking a new six-year term as he marks his 14th year in power.
