Egyptians appear set to approve the country’s new constitution by a wide margin today via a nationwide referendum. The Muslim Brotherhood, which has backed President Mohamed Morsi and the proposed constitution, is reporting on the vote via its Twitter feed.

Those numbers seem to match those reported by Egyptian media. Much of the no vote seems to be coming from Egypt’s second-largest city, Alexandria, where violent clashes are reported to have left at least 19 injured.

Some media outlets, including Reuters and the Jerusalem Post, are reporting that the office of the Wafd opposition party was attacked with petrol bombs and birdshot late in the day.

As CBS reports, “The draft would empower Islamists to carry out the most widespread and strictest implementation of Islamic law that modern Egypt has seen.” We can’t confirm the text on this sign, but it’s being retweeted quite a bit.

Update:

Here is the tally by city according to the Muslim Brotherhood’s feed.

  • Blake Waymire

    I have a feeling the voting may not be entirely honest.

  • Steve_J

    In other words the protests didn’t mean anything.

  • sybilll

    Let Egypt burn. Sans our tax dollars.

  • Scott

    Looking like our muslim president isn’t the only muslim president that knows how to rig a vote.

      Bigotry and falsehoods. A fine example of why America still has a long way to go.

      • Scott

        I suppose that depends on where you think America needs to go. If it continues to go where all of the left nuts are taking it then we are not far away at all. If it goes where it should be then we have to turn it around towards the RIGHT soon and yes it does have a long way to go to straighten it out.

        Bigotry, like when the union thugs in Michigan called the Hot Dog Guy an “Uncle Tom n*gger”, and falsehoods, like when the union thugs claimed despite video evidence to the contrary that AFP took down its own tent?

        Yes, your side has both in spades.

        • Guest

          If “my side” has it in spades, it should be dealt with. See how easy that is… Admitting a wrong and wanting to change it? Pointing fingers and saying “they do it too” is no defence.

      Your side is the one who banned Sunday early voting because you didn’t like blacks voting after church.

      • Scott

        Shouldnt be early voting for anyone except the elderly and active military and there Damn sure shouldn’t be ANY voting on Sunday for anyone not because they are black but because that is the LORDS day only (Dont forget that it was YOUR party that boo’ed God at the DNC). Which is the actual reason for no Sunday voting, but idiot LIBTARDS are very adept at making up stupid things like what you said because the other LIBTARDS are so quick to believe anything negative about MY party. How easily YOUR party forgets that it was YOUR party that started the KKK and it was MY party that freed blacks from slavery. But you go ahead and keep your head in the clouds and your nose up DUMBOBAMAS rear end while he is leading this country straight to hell if it makes you feel better.
        But you may want to wake up and start asking questions and thinking for yourself instead of following blindly those that don’t have the best interest of OUR COUNTRY in mind when making decisions, no matter what political party they belong to. It is time for all people to start taking responsibility for what is happening here and start making the smart decisions instead of the politically correct, feel good, whats in it for ME, and the guilt and revenge decisions

    That’s what they want, I doubt they fixed elections, no need to.

    And Barack is in Connecticut for his photo op and a round of golf, but he was seen doing a football spike and high 5 just before his morning call to prayer facing Mecca….
