Turkish voters are going to the polls to decide whether to grant President Recep Tayyip Erdogan a second five-year term, in the most fiercely-fought elections in the country in years.
 
If Erdogan wins, he will adopt major new powers that critics say will weaken the democratic rule.
 
But he faces a major challenge from center-left candidate Muharrem Ince of the Republican People's Party (CHP).
 
Turkey remains under a state of emergency imposed in the aftermath of a failed coup in July 2016.
 
These elections were originally scheduled for November 2019 but were brought forward by Erdogan.
