Incumbent President Patrice Talon is being challenged by two candidates, but voter turnout is low.
And even though the president is predicted to win a second term, nobody expected him to be on the ballot.
Few expect this vote to go into a second round, which means President Talon will likely secure a second five-year mandate that could strengthen his grip on power.
