Algerians are voting in elections in which incumbent President Abdelaziz Bouteflika is seeking a fourth term.
Despite not personally campaigning, Mr Bouteflika, is expected to beat his five other opponents.
His re-election bid has spawned a protest movement called Barakat, meaning "Enough", which have been holding demonstrations around the country.
