Kayhan Safadi, his wife Shahrzad and daughter Shadi cast votes Friday in Iran's parliamentary elections.

Final results from Friday's disputed parliamentary elections in Iran are not expected for several days.

A boycott was urged by reformists after 2,500 reform candidates were disqualified from running for office. Many observers expect turnout to be relatively low as a result.
