Locations of the Iranian election voting centers in the U.S.

I just received a list of locations in the U.S. where Iranians can go to vote in the June 17th election. Check here to download a pdf document with the names and addresses of the locations.

Iranian opposition groups claim these voting centers are illegal since representatives of the Islamic Republic of Iran are not permitted to travel further than 25 miles from their offices in NY and Washington D.C. and Iranian law requires a representative of the government to be present. Therefore, any voting taking place outside that 25 mile area would violate U.S. law, so I am told.

Some of these opposition groups have had success in the past in shutting down these locations. Read here to see how you can help them in this effort.
