 Herat Province - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The province was one of the first major battlegrounds in the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and remained an active area of guerrilla warfare throughout, with local military commander and mujahideen Ismail Khan leading resistance to Soviet rule from 1979 until the Soviet withdrawal in 1988 (see the article on the city of Herat for details).
When the Soviets withdrew, Khan became the governor of the province, in which position he remained until the Taliban took control of the province in 1995.
The province is currently (as of November 2003) ruled more or less autocratically by Khan, despite some attempts by the interim central government (headed by Hamid Karzai) to weaken the power of local strongmen.

 Situation Reports: Afghanistan, BAAG Afghanistan Monthly Review Nov 2005
It is noteworthy that, in the provincial council elections, Abdul Qadir Dostam, the brother of Abdul Rashid Dostam, received 25.08% of the vote in Jowzjan Province and that President Karzai’s brother received 10.56% of the votes in Kandahar.
While these two particular provinces have a history of extreme conservatism or Islamic radicalism, it is not possible to determine an obvious geographical pattern for the percentage of votes allocated to the successful female parliamentary candidates across the country.
In the 13 provinces where the successful female candidates, between them, had more than 5% of the vote, it thus appeared to be the case that there were one or two particularly strong female candidates (Kabul was the exception where each female candidate received about the same percentage as the others).
