Egypt's Presidential Elections Commission has launched an official website for upcoming presidential polls to provide would-be voters with voting information and services.

The site will also allow Egyptians living abroad to change their designated voting districts in Egypt to their current host countries, or vice versa. The deadline for changing designated voting districts is 4 April.

The website, which has a  "frequently asked questions" section, will also enable users to submit inquiries and comments.

On Monday, Egyptians living abroad began registering to vote in the country’s first post-Mubarak presidential contest.

The upcoming polls will be held in Egypt on 23 and 24 May. Expatriate Egyptians living overseas will have seven days, starting on 11 May, to cast ballots.
