Voting on SRF’s online portal has now begun as the country takes another step closer to selecting their Eurovision Song Contest entry for 2016.

Over 150 songs were submitted to the online platform, and now Eurovision fans will be able to have their say on which ten entries will progress to the expert check round of the process.

You can cast your votes on the SRF website.

Users can submit a maximum of four votes, and the voting will close on 17 November.

The votes of the public will be combined with a jury vote to decide which ten songs make it to the next round.

The ten successful entries will perform live at the expert check, expected to be on 6 December, and they will be joined by nine more artists; six representing RTS and three representing RSI.

The panel for the expert jury will chose three songs from the SRF selection, two from RTS and one from RSI to take part in the national final on 13 February.

Earlier this year, Melanie Rene won the Swiss selection and represented the country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015.

She failed to make it out of her semi-final after finishing 17th with four points.

Who will you be voting for in the Swiss selection?
