A new era begins as Egypt holds its first presidential election since Hosni Mubarak was run out of power last year.

FOX News Radio's Emily Wither reports from Cairo:

There are huge lines outside polling stations here in the capital. Egyptians eager to vote in their first free and fair  elections.

This voter told me he's excited because he really doesn't know who will win this time:

(Voter) "Last year, winner Muhammad Hosni Mubarak will win. But today, everything is changed."

Egyptians have a real choice here. Do they want a more secular leader? Or an Islamist candidate? The four front-runners split down the middle.

But for many security and the economy are the two issues leading voters.
