On May 19, Iranians living in the United States overwhelmingly voted for President Hassan Rouhani. Some 96 percent of the 30,039 voters supported him. More than 50 polling stations were set up across the country. Iranians in the Washington D.C. area cast their votes at the Iranian Interests Section at the Pakistani Embassy. No polling stations were set up in Canada, so some Iranians traveled to Washington, New York or other states near the border to vote.
Hassan Rouhani: 28,840 votes
Ebrahim Raisi: 1,043 votes
Mostafa Mir-Salim: 118 votes
Mostafa Hashemitaba: 38 votes
