SOT, Marta, Voter (Polish): "I decided that it was worth going to the elections and voting so that one party would not [always] have the majority. I would like to see more parties in the parliament and that is why I came here today. I voted for a party that has no chance of winning, but at least I would like to weaken the bigger parties."

SCRIPT
Polish voters headed to polling stations in Warsaw on Sunday to cast their ballot for the parliamentary elections.
One of the voters, Marta, explained that she decided to vote "so that one party would not always have the majority. I would like to see more parties in parliament and that is why I came here today. I voted for a party that has no chance of winning, but at least I would like to weaken the bigger parties."
Ryszard, another voter, shared his optimism about the elections saying, "There is always a chance that someone better will come."
The ruling right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) party, which has been in power for the past four years, is expected to be in the lead.
