Venezuelans are choosing governors and state lawmakers in elections that have become a key test of whether President Hugo Chavez's movement can endure if the socialist leader leaves the political stage. The vote is the first time in Chavez's nearly 14-year-old presidency that he has been unable to actively campaign. He hasn't spoken publicly since undergoing cancer surgery on Tuesday in Cuba.
