Protesters were also detained at Barinas (where Chavez was born) and Valencia. If you want to know more about these ilegal detentions, follow @alfredoromero
I have also read reports about 5 people being detained only for 'cacerolear'! (hitting pots and pans to protest). This happened in Zulia. Apparently in all regions, pro-government majors are cometing to see who is the most crazy server of Maduro, who treats people the worse, who criminalises more the protests.
2. Intimidation For Those Working For The Government or Receive Benefits from any Government Program (the missions)
The secret of the vote is well protected in Venezuela, despite all the deficiences our electoral system has. Nevertheless, several public workers have been threatened and at risk of losing their jobs merely because their bosses "suspect" they did not voted for Maduro. Caracas Chronicles posted a recording where the Sports Secretary of the Zulia State says that they will fire those he knows voted for Capriles
But this is not only about jobs. Many others could lose the benefits of the social programs (Misiones) so fiercely promotted by Chavez. Again, only because those responsable of the programs "suspect" of some citizens, or because at some centers of natural disaster refugees that were waiting for a government-made house, Capriles won instead of Maduro. Political loyalty has always been demanded in this so called Revolution (to this respect, the unfamous "Tascon List"), but now that the Revolution is in serious danger to dissapear, more than ever.
