Exit polls suggest that first lady Cristina Fernandez won the presidential election by a large enough margin to avoid a runoff, which would make her the first woman in Argentina elected to the post.
Official results were due later today and none of the opposition candidates have conceded defeat. Some challengers complained of unprecedented fraud.
Fernandez is shown above, right, with her husband, President Nestor Kircher, after they voted and returned to the capital to await results. Her husband is widely credited for Argentina's rebound from a 2001 economic collapse and much of her support is due to her popularity.
For the latest on the Argentinean elections, read this report that will be updated with the latest results by Bill Cormier from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
