In a ceremony that combined spiritual dignity with global diversity, a thousand Baha'is from 153 countries cast ballots in an election to choose the nine members of the Universal House of Justice, the international governing body of the Baha'i Faith.

The members of the Universal House of Justice are, from left to right
Farzam Arbab, Kiser Barnes, Peter Khan, Hooper Dunbar, Firaydoun Javaheri,
Paul Lample, Payman Mohajer, Shahriar Razavi, and Gustavo Correa.

For nearly three hours, delegates to the 10th International Baha'i Convention filed decorously, one by one, onto a majestically adorned stage, each dropping a ballot into a simple wooden box.

Convention delegates prayed at Holy Places before casting their ballots.
