Pakistanis streamed to the polls Saturday in a historic vote despite a series of violent attacks that has killed over 130 people in recent weeks.

It is the first time in the nation's history that an elected government is fulfilling its term and handing over power to another. Pakistan has seen three military coups.

Here are some images from regions across the nation on election day.
