YEREVAN, Armenia (CNN) -- Armenians headed to the voting booth Sunday in an election that pits President Levon Ter-Petrosyan against former prime minister Vazgen Manukyan for a new five-year term.

The 2.4 million electorate in the mountainous Caucasus state between Iran, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey had until 10 p.m.(1800 GMT) to cast ballots.

Ter-Petrosyan has led the country through the last five years of economic hardship and independence.
