Election officials set up voting booths on Friday in over 2-thousand polling stations in Kosovo, a day before voters set out to chose lawmakers for the province's parliament and local councils.
Kosovo's voters, who will choose a new parliament on Saturday, have watched with increasing scepticism as their leaders have failed in two years of plodding negotiations to deliver the province independence from Serbia.
Voters will elect a new provincial parliament; the party that gets the most seats in the 120-member legislature will form a government and name a prime minister.
Voters will also choose local councils and municipal mayors.
Some 1.5 (m) million voters are registered to vote in the election that seeks to legitimise province's leaders amid stalled talks with Serbia geared to determine if Kosovo becomes independent or reverts back to tighter control from Belgrade.
It is the third general election since Kosovo came under United Nations and NATO control in 1999, after the last in a string of wars that shattered Yugoslavia.
Two years of negotiations between Kosovo's ethnic Albanian leaders and the Serbian government over the province's status have made little progress.
The latest effort is being mediated by representatives from the United States, Russia and the European Union, who have a deadline of December 10 to report back to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
In a further blow to the public's confidence, Kosovo's leaders have recently backtracked from promises for an immediate declaration of independence if no deal is reached by the deadline.
Instead, they are insisting that the mediators' report will bring clarity about when such a declaration might be made.
