Bang! Vote! Venezuela's election callout.

An explosive call to get out the vote. Venezuelans wake up in the pre-dawn hours of Sunday to fireworks displays as the country heads to the polls. President Hugo Chavez and opposition leader Henrique Capriles are in a tight race that could see the president lose for the first time in 14 years. Some voters lined up before daybreak to cast their ballots. One Chavez supporter says the president orders the noisy wake-up call every election. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) CHAVEZ SUPPORTER ANGEL REYES SAYING: "There aren't many lines right now but the Commander in Chief does it always and it is an order for all of us to wake up early." Chavez is leading most polls, but those dissatisfied with his socialist rule and high crime rates in the country are hoping the centrist Governor Capriles can unseat the powerful president.
