Venezuelans are voting today in what could be a landmark election.
The main candidates for the 2012 election are the incumbent Hugo Chavez and Henrique Capriles Radonski.
For the election, voters place a "X" on the face of the candidate they want to voter for. Once the voter made their decision, their pinky finger is marked in purple ink.

The purple finger has been making its way onto Twitter with voters taking pictures of their finger.
Venezuelans are also voting in New York City and New Orleans in the United States.
Univision reported there has been no fraud complaints or violence.
According to The Guardian, "This system is 100 percent fraud proof and has been recognised as such by outside political institutions," said Venezuela's National Electoral Council's Luis Guillermo Piedra.
Voting is scheduled to close at 6 p.m. local time, however, large turnout will force officials to extend the deadline.
