Social media are alive with support for the "Yes" and "No" campaigns in Sunday's referendum on constitutional change in Turkey.

Fifty-five million voters are expected to vote. Overseas votes have already been cast in high numbers.

Here is a sample on Twitter from both sides of the argument:

Murat Ozgur is voting "yes," and he tweeted #Yes in 10 different languages.

Twitter user @ZEHRAERIC is voting "no" and says, "NO, 100 thousand times NO."

Twitter user Suat Ozdag is voting "yes" and says, "Travelling from Turkey's Van in a "Yes" convoy.

Ugur Erhan shared the "No" campaign picture and will also be voting "no" tomorrow.

@eylul_RTE says, "With the spirit of July 15th martyrs, "yes"" 

User @SRYULUCA says "God willing, hope it is a "No" win."
