The Carter Center in Atlanta is sending 90 people to witness the runoff election for Egypt's president June 16-17.

The center announced that the witnesses will come from 36 countries. They will follow polling, counting and parts of the tabulation process where access has been granted, but there are restrictions on what they will see.

The mission will include state Sen. Jason Carter of Georgia and the director of the Carter Center's Democracy Program, David Carroll.

The Carter Center also had witnesses at the first round of polling in May.
