Poles are today (Sunday) voting for a successor to their late president, Lech Kaczynski, who died in a plane crash in Russia ten weeks ago.
Polling stations are open from noon Beijing time on Sunday until 2 a. m. on Monday. Exit polls showing the final expected results will be published after voting ends.
Around 30 million Poles from a total population of 38 million are eligible to vote. Turnout in the 2005 presidential election was only about 50 percent, and only slightly better, at 54 percent, in the last parliamentary election in 2007.
Lech Kaczynski died along with 95 others, including his wife and much of Poland's political and military elite in April when his plane crashed in the city of Smolensk.
