Louisiana early voting begins

After controversy surrounding absentee balloting provisions for the April mayoral primary, early voting has begun for the May 20th runoff between Nagin and Landrieu.

Election officials note that, although there were threats of lawsuits following the April election, none have surfaced. It appears that the NAACP, other voting rights advocates, and state and parish officials are cooperating to ensure voter access.
