Over 31mn ballots used; voter turnout at 64.4%

The 9th Majlis (parliamentary) election since the 1979 Islamic Revolution officially started across the country at 08:00 local time on Friday, and was initially scheduled to continue until 18:00.

People’s overwhelming turnout, however, prompted officials to extend the original voting time by four hours in two stages: first to 21:00 local time and then to 22:00.

An early ballot count, according to officials, showed that more than 31 million ballots were used by 21:00 local time, indicating an overall voter turnout of 64.6 percent.

Most provinces requested a voting time extension and more ballot paper with Kordestan province in west Iran among the provinces that requested more ballot paper.
