Brazil's Presidential candidates have closed their campaigns ahead of Brazil's elections on Sunday.

On Friday, electronic ballot boxes for the election were distributed throughout the country. Voters will cast ballots for a federal deputy, state deputy, two senators, a state governor, and the president.

Ruling party candidate Dilma Rousseff is expected to avoid a runoff against her main rival Jose Serra after virtually sailing through Brazil's most-watched and final TV debate Thursday night.

Rousseff is President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's chosen successor. Local newspapers show the poll showing her with just enough support to win in the first round. However, the analysts say a second round is still possible.

Ricardo Ismael, Political Analyst, said, "Candidate Dilma Rousseff has a chance of winning on Sunday as the latest Data Folha poll has shown. This victory is likely to happen with a small advantage, with a margin of two to four percentage points. But there is also another possible scenario. Fifteen days ago we were not considering it, but now it is a possible outcome, that there may be a second round."
