Judge Refuses to Delay New Orleans Vote - Yahoo! News

Yahoo! News: "A federal judge on Monday refused to delay New Orleans' April 22 mayoral election, telling both sides to solve any problems that might hinder displaced residents' ability to vote.

'If you are a displaced citizen, like I am, we have a burning desire for completeness,' said U.S. District Judge Ivan Lemelle, whose own New Orleans home flooded after Hurricane Katrina.

Lemelle said voting will help the city rebuild, but he warned that its residents have already lost trust in institutions. 'I recognize that there is still room for improvement in that electoral process,' he said."
