Nabz Elections Central 2021

Calendar of the presidential and local elections, parliamentary and the assembly of experts mid-term elections 2021

On June 18, Iranians will go to the polls to elect a new president for a four-year term. While the presidential race understandably receives considerable attention domestically and internationally, Iranians also elect more than 127,610 fellow citizens to represent them on village, municipal and regional councils; they will also decide on representatives for six of the parliament seat (Majlis) and four seats of the Assembly of Experts in mid-term elections.
Elections are more than just one day and the casting of a ballot. They are part of an ongoing cycle by which citizens participate in the process of delivering a better quality of life, whether at the national, regional or local level. Such a process can only improve if citizens take part in all of its aspects. Genuine elections are a fundamental human right; when conducted properly they encourage popular engagement, accountability, and peaceful transfer of power. Even as one election passes, it begins another cycle and offers opportunities to improve the system.
Nabz-Iran has followed elections since 2013 and compiled a series of resources to encourage a more accountable system that involves and responds to citizens. See below to learn more and check back for new materials. What Were Past Results? Check here.
