Saudi Arabian women will vote for the first time ever. They will vote in elections later this year. Safinaz Al-Shamat was the first woman to arrive at the centre to register. She said it was her national duty. Another woman said becoming a voter, "was a dream for us". She said: "We are just at the beginning of the road."

Letting women vote was a plan of King Abdullah, who died earlier this year. More than 70 women want to run for office and more than 80 want to be campaign managers. Ms Haifa al-Hababi, 36, wants to campaign for change. She said: "Change is life. The government has given us this tool and I [will] use it."
