MIAMI - A Venezuelan opposition group is launching a campaign to protect against voter fraud aimed at citizens who live abroad.
Representatives from the Democratic Unity Roundtable say they want to make sure no one votes in the place of a Venezuelan who lives in another country and cannot return to cast their ballot.
Opposition leader Henrique Capriles narrowly lost the presidential election in April to ruling party candidate Nicolas Maduro. Capriles has claimed Maduro secured the 1.5-point victory through fraud.
The new voting campaign asks Venezuelans living outside the South American country to register online at www.quenadievoteporti.com. Their names will then be verified at polling sites during the December municipal elections if anyone attempts to vote in their place.
