As of 15:30 local time (12:30 GMT), at one of the polling stations, 336 voters out of 640 registered have already voted, at another the turnout stood at 324 out of 648, and at a third one – at 279 voters out of 608.
“In January, 220 people have voted by this hour,” the head of the third polling station told RIA Novosti.
Opinion polls released earlier on Sunday suggest that the majority of Greeks voted against the lenders-proposed bailout plan. The “No” vote is believed to be leading with a margin of 4-8 percent.
Greece is one of the countries hit worst by the 2008-2009 financial crisis. The country’s overall debt stands at about $350 billion, of which $270 billion is owed to the European Central Bank (ECB), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and some Eurozone countries.
On Sunday, Greeks took to the polls to vote on whether the country should accept the creditors' bailout plan that presupposes more austerity reforms in exchange for additional financial aid.
