Bolivians vote Sunday on a constitutional reform that would allow Evo Morales to seek a fourth term as president, potentially extending his stay in office until 2025 .Morales, Bolivia's first indigenous president, was first elected to office in 2006 and re-elected twice. The most recent polls showed 47 percent of voters leaning towards rejecting the constitutional reform, against 27 percent in favor.Voting is mandatory, and some 6.5 million Bolivians are eligible to cast ballots.Morales has overseen robust economic growth in Bolivia, but opponents accuse him of presiding over corruption and investing in flashy infrastructure projects at the expense of health and education.If the constitutional amendment he supports is rejected by voters, it would be a rare defeat for Morales.
