Seyed Mustafa Tajzadeh has a very good analytic article in shargh regarding the percentage of people who have voted in the 7th parlimetary elections in Iran.
In the elections the Guardian Council had disqualified 23 out of 30 candidates for 2 seats for "Sanandaj - Divandarreh - Kamyaran". The overall participation of kurds in the 7th parliment election has been 27.84% decreased from 70.18% in 6th parliment election.
this is the official results from the website of the ministry of interior for the 7th parliment election.
also you can find some statistics about the 6th parliment election results here.

Why doesn't anyone produce some charts to clearly reveal the rate of participation in the recent elections? Someone needs to do so and publish the results on a weblog

Well, as Tajzadeh has claimed himself he has prepared some more articles that he is going to publish, also I think the participation front "Jebhe Mosharekat" will give more detailed charts after the results have been finalized by the guardian council also.
BTW that's a good idea that someone would put a time to organize the results. Maybe if I would have some time I would do it.
Anyone volunteer to help is welcome.
