Update: Thanks for following our live chat. You can see a recording of the broadcast below.

The 49 dismembered bodies found in Monterrey, Mexico, this week underscored the serious security concerns that plague the country and its war on drugs.

And yet, security isn’t the biggest issue in the country’s general election campaign. The current presidential front-runner, Enrique Peña Nieto, has largely avoided giving concrete details on a security policy, instead emphasizing his personal appeal.

Voters are instead most worried about rampant corruption and a lack of accountability, reports The Globe’s Marina Jimenez, currently in Mexico to cover the election.

How will security and the drug cartels influence the election? How will a new president tackle the country’s most serious problems?

Ms. Jimenez is participating in a live video chat to take your questions from Mexico.
