Presidential Poll Showdown in Austria

Austrians have returned to the polls to decide the presidential race between a rightwing populist and his left-leaning rival. 
The vote is being watched, as a far-right win could boost populist movements in Europe.
Voters in Austria headed to the polls on Sunday morning at the end of a bitterly fought campaign between Greens-backed Alexander Van der Bellen and the anti-migrant Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer.
Most polling stations opened at 7 a.m. (0600 UTC) and will close by 5 p.m. on Sunday. Results are expected to arrive later in the evening, but the winner may not be known until absentee ballots are tallied on Monday, reported Deutsche Welle.
