Welcome to Ahram Online's live coverage of the vote counting for Egypt's 2014 constitutional referendum.

Egyptians headed to polling stations on Tuesday and Wednesday to vote on a newly-amended national charter, which improves upon the 2012 version that was frozen upon the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.

As expected, vote counting began right after the end of polling at 9pm CMT on Wednesday. It is widely assumed that the "yes" vote in favour of the constitution will comprise the majority of ballots, given that most of the groups which objected to the referendum, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, announced a boycott and abstained from voting.

A festive atmosphere reigned at most polling stations across the country over the two-day referendum, with voters chanting both for the draft constitution and popular army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.

Each polling station must announce the results right after the vote counting and is obliged to allow accredited observers and reporters to supervise the process. Polling stations shall also send results to their respective central electoral committees, which would announce aggregated vote counts.

Below is a list of the governorates that voted in the referendum. Results are expected to unfold in the coming hours.
