In this article electoral participation was analyzed in 9'h Iranian presidential election. The article claims that, the rate of electoral participation has problematic variation in the country's. Through critical reasoning. this paper initially tries to prove that electoral participation is a problematic event in Iran, and then considers the following research question: How can the degree of variations in electoral participation be explained in Iran ?" In response to this question, based on theoretical approaches of Diamond. Huntington, and Lipset, the following hypothesis is proposed: "the higher the level of educational development, the higher the degree of electoral participation". In the next step. the research hypothesis was tested by regression analysis method. Empirical findings revealed that the correlation coefficient of electoral participation with educational development was equal to 0.69, and that the proportion of the variation of electoral participation that is explained was equal to.48 .
