Poll predicts big turnout for Iran elections

A new poll suggests that voter turnout will be high in today's elections in Iran despite the disqualification of most Reformist candidates.

Despite limited candidate choices, 70-80% of Iranians are likely to participate in the Feb. 26 elections, according to a new poll.

The survey, by Information and Public Opinion Solutions LLC, an independent research service based outside Washington, and shared with Al-Monitor in advance of publication, suggests a favorable outcome for centrists backing the administration of President Hassan Rouhani.
