An Iranian election official say over 59 million people are eligible to vote in the 2021 presidential election, slotted for June 18.

Esmaeil Mousavi, the spokesman of the Interior Ministry’s Election Committee, said Monday that 59,310, 307 million Iranians can cast votes in the forthcoming presidential election.

More than 72,000 polling stations will be set up across the country, including mobile ones, according to Mousavi.

He said voting would be electronic in 24 provincial capitals, except for Tehran, where no paper ballots or usual ballot boxes would be used.

The Iranians will pick their next president from among seven candidates, who are now in the middle of intense campaigning.

The campaign events will run until June 16, after which the candidates will observe a day of pre-election silence prior to the crucial vote.

City council, midterm parliamentary, and Assembly of Experts elections will be held simultaneously with the presidential vote.
