In pictures: candidates and electorate cast their vote

The candidates, their families and plenty of others across the country are voting today.

SIX OF THE seven presidential candidates have been to cast their vote this morning as have many others across the country.

Except for Martin McGuinness, who is not eligible to vote in the Republic, the six men and women who are hoping to succeed Mary McAleese in Áras an Uachtaráin have been voting in the presidential election and the two referendums being held today.

Mary Davis, Gay Mitchell and David Norris cast their vote in Dublin. Seán Gallagher voted in Louth, Michael D Higgins cast his vote in Galway and Dana Rosemary Scallon was at her polling station in Clare Galway.

President McAleese also voted this morning along with some of the other 3 million people eligible to take part across Ireland:
