Iran Starts To Become Transparent And Releases Vote Counts

Iran will be releasing box-by-box vote counts in an attempt to resolve the democratic crisis facing the muslim country. Press Tv, an Iranian news website has reported that Iran will be releasing each ballot box's vote count; a specific time when the release is planned was not given.

With the publishing of these numbers I imagine the vote tallies will either clearly demonstrate there was election fraud or will simply muddle the waters. That either the numbers are so skewed that small regions can confidently exclaim those results were falsified or that the numbers, being so possible, cannot be proven or denied.

Though both of these outcomes will not put an end to the violence in Iran, the very fact Iran is releasing these ballot box counts is a good thing.
