Egyptians begin voting in first post-Mubarak poll

Egyptians began voting Monday morning in the first elections since the fall of autocrat Hosni Mubarak who was ousted in February in one of the most important moments of the Arab Spring.
At the Omar Makram school, in the working class central Cairo neighbourhood of Shubra, men and women queued in separate lines before the opening of polling stations at 8:00 am (0600G).
“It was no use to vote before. Our voices were completely irrelevant,” Mona Abdel Moneim, one of several women who said they were voting for the first time in their lives, told AFP.
