Egypt Elections

Egypt Elections Watch has just been launched by Jadaliyya in association with Ahram Online, the Center of Contemporary Arab Studies (Georgetown University) and the Middle East Studies Program (George Mason University). This site has excellent introductions to election laws, profiles of parties and key figures along with maps, legislation and links to key news feeds and facebook sites(many in Arabic). 

Another useful website is Egypt Votes which aims to encourage quality reporting by young Egyptian journalists. It is jointly financed by the Department of Foreign Affairs, International Trade Canada and the German Federal Foreign Office. Again, some of the site is in Arabic. For further suggestions for news covering the Egyptian elections see the Elections in the News blog from the LSE.
