Once voting closes, the votes will be counted and the preliminary list of winners will be announced.
Voting for Federal National Council (FNC) representatives opened on Saturday morning in 39 polling centres across the country, according to a report by the WAM state news agency.
The voting process began at 8am and will run until 8pm. Once voting closes, the votes will be counted and the preliminary list of winners will be announced.
"Since the start of the voting process - including early voting - a high turnout of voters were recorded at polling centres, reflecting the awareness of citizens on the importance of their political participation and parliamentary work in the UAE. This was also demonstrated in the overwhelming interaction shown by various community members, including women, the youth, and People of Determination," the WAM report said.
In order to vote all votes must present their National ID cards before casting their ballot.
