The Arab Spring sent Egyptians to the polls this week in the nation's first-ever presidential election.  Two days of voting and millions of ballots cast, and the entire country waits to see just how much an impact the revolution will have on Egypt's government.  


 As of Friday morning, it looked like former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq - a man who served under Mubarak - and Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi would be heading for a runoff vote in June.

Omar Ashour voted in this election.  He's the director of Middle East Studies at the University of Exeter.
