Poles vote in election, Euroskeptic party seen as favorite

Poles voted Sunday in a parliamentary election that is expected to shift power from a centrist and pro-market party to a socially conservative and somewhat Euroskeptic party that favors more welfare spending to help the poor. Opinion polls show the populist Law and Justice party holding a strong lead over Civic Platform, which has governed the country for eight years. Voting stations across this nation of 37 million people opened at 7 a.m. (0600 GMT) Sunday and are to close at 9 p.m. (2000 GMT). Exit polls will be released when polls close, with official results due Monday.
