Voting began in Yugoslavia Sunday in presidential and legislative elections, which could end Slobodan Milosevic's tenure as president.
Voters went to the polls amid claims and counter-claims of plans to rig the ballot and fears that Milosevic will maintain power regardless of the results.
More than 10,000 polling stations opened at 7:00 a.m. (0500 GMT). They were due to close at 8:00 p.m.
Pre-election opinion polls predicted opposition candidate Vojislav Kostunica would win the presidential vote.
