Indonesians head to the polls on Wednesday to elect their next president and vice president -- only the second time such a vote has occurred in the young democracy's history.


Three familiar faces are vying for the top spot: incumbent Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono; his vice president, Yusuf Kalla; and former President Megawati Sukarnoputri.

Analysts and polls have Yudhoyono -- riding high on the country's economic strength -- widely expected to win a second five-year term.
