People queued at polling stations all over Egypt today to cast their votes in the first free presidential elections since the end of Hosni Mubarak's 30-year reign.
For many elderly voters, it was their first chance to have their voice heard.
74-year-old, Mohamed Abdul Radi told Reuters: "People are coming out in droves because they feel, like me, that this is the first time my vote has value.
"For the first time. Before this it didn't matter to me whether or not I came out to vote. The results were predetermined. But now I feel that my vote genuinely counts."
