Polling began around 8:30 am and is expected to end at 5:00 pm.

A third candidate contesting in the SCBA presidential election is Ikram Chaudhry.

Chaudhry is a veteran of bar politics with significant support in Rawalpindi and also some in Lahore. His presence in the field could funnel away some support from Jahangir.
