Biden Administration Allows Iran to Run Absentee Voting Stations in the U.S.!

Iran International reports that the Biden administration has once again permitted Iran’s government to establish absentee ballot stations across the US for the upcoming Iranian presidential election on June 28.

The decision, first reported by the Voice of America, has sparked outrage among critics who view it as legitimizing the Islamic Republic’s “authoritarian rule”.

Alireza Mahmoudi, an official from the Iranian Foreign Ministry, earlier confirmed plans to set up 30 voting locations, including at venues such as the Iranian Interests Section at the Pakistani embassy in Washington DC and a location in New York.

The move comes despite the US State Department’s acknowledgment that Iran’s elections are “neither free nor fair”, as it only allows candidates loyal to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei to run.

Richard Goldberg, a senior adviser to the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, expressed dismay to VOA, questioning the rationale behind facilitating what he called a “charade for a state sponsor of terrorism.”

Moreover, the locations for these ballot stations have raised further concerns. In 2021, several US and British hotel properties and Islamic centers were used as polling stations, though there is no confirmation if these venues will be used again.

Critics, including Cameron Khansarinia, vice president of the National Union for Democracy in Iran (NUFDI), argue that those participating in and operating these stations should be “publicly shamed” for their role in supporting what many consider a “sham election”.
