What really happened in Iran during that election count? As thousands protest the results and demonstrate, we've gone to the Iranian Ministry of the Interior to get the official version of events.

We've then compared those numbers to the Presidential Office's eligible voters by region data to see what the turnout as in each case. Whether you believe over 99% turnouts anywhere is one thing, but this data is only the beginning.

There are other versions of this stuff out there - has visualised these figures as a map, while Iran Tracker has another set. The figures we've uploads are, as far as we can work out, the official totals, so you should be safe using them.
