Moldovans are casting ballots in presidential election with incumbent President Igor Dodon running for a second term.

Dodon is competing against longtime pro-Western rival Maia Sandu and six other candidates in the election.

The incumbent president held the highest rating in the latest opinion poll, conducted by the Association of Sociology and Demography of Moldova from October 11-20, with 32.5 percent support in the country, while Sandu commanded 18.4 percent support. Notable opposition candidate Andrei Nastase garnered 9.3 percent support.
