maduroNew Orleans, Louisiana will be ‘ground zero’ for Venezuelans looking to vote in the Venezuelan Presidential special election between ‘Chavista’ and interim president Nicolas Madura and Henrique Capriles.

In October 2012, the late Venezuelan strongman, Hugo Chavez defeated Capriles in Venezuela’s presidential election, but not before closing the Venezuela’s Miami consulate after the U.S. expelled his chief diplomat, after they alleged that she was involved in spying.
