TURNOUT, TURNOUT, TURNOUT:

President Rouhani texts citizens 'dear people of Iran, the country needs your vote' (Harriet Sinclair, February 24, 2016, IB Times)

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has issued a reminder to citizens to vote in the upcoming elections on 26 February, reaching out to people via text message. On the last day of campaigning, on 24 February, his message asked voters to help choose "a hopeful future" for the country.

His text said: "Dear people of Iran, the country needs your vote. Let's decide on a hopeful future for Iran on Friday."

It comes as some young people said they would not be voting at all, preferring instead to campaign for regime change.
