Iranians went to the polls Friday to vote for a new president. State media reports about 70% of those eligible to vote did so. Officials were forced to extend the hours at polling locations due to the higher-than-expected turnout.

Erin Burnett visited several polling locations. She reports on election day in Tehran.
