Today Iranians are voting for president. I am Suzanne Maloney, an expert on Iran, AMA.
Hi, I'm Suzanne Maloney and I'm an expert on Iran at the Saban Center at the Brookings Institution, and editor of the blog www.IranAtSaban.com. Today, Iranians are voting for their new president, so please ask your questions about policy towards Iran, or politics in Iran, or Iran in general, and I'll try to answer them all.

[EDIT #2] Thanks for all your great questions - I've got to run and do more election monitoring now. I'll plan to come back later today and answer as many more questions as I can. In the meantime, keep an eye on http://www.IranAtSaban.com for more on Iran and the election! Thanks!
[EDIT #3] Another thanks for all the questions and comments, this has been a lot of fun. The election appears to be moving slowly to a surprise victory for the moderate candidate Hassan Rouhani. Good news all around! I've been responding over the course of the night and morning of 6/15 but will wrap things up now!
