Photos show Syrian citizens living in Lebanon voting at a polling station set up at the Syrian embassy in the town of Yarzeh, near Beirut.
The polling station opened its doors at 7:00 am and will be receiving voters until 7:00 pm.
The Lebanese National News Agency (NNA) quoted the Syrian Ambassador to Lebanon, Ali Abdul Karim Ali, as saying that the voting process may have to be extended until tomorrow.
Ali told the NNA, "Syrians who have not been able to register their names, or have been prevented from voting can go to one of the polling stations on the Syrian side of the Lebanese-Syrian border on June 3rd."
The Syrian Presidential election will be held in Syria on June 3, 2014. It will be the first multi-candidate presidential election in Syria since the Assad family took power in 1971.
