MORE...kalb video...around 150 voters or more were turned away from their usual voting precinct saturday...a precinct worker sandra powers, said on camera: "its because they moved our precinct one of them in here over to bolton they did not send any cards out we did not know about it either...until we found out just the other day." ...rapides registrar of voters johnell wilson tries to explain the change in precincts away as due to reapportionment 6 years ago and that change of precinct cards had been mailed out presumably 6 years ago, this is despite what her own poll commissioner said...a disenfranchised voter who didnt wish to appear on camera said that she had voted at rugg recently (within the past six years)...kalb larry collins report in .mp3 audio here.
"Third-place finisher Roosevelt Johnson said Sunday he would talk to family and campaign staff Sunday and wait until the official vote count Tuesday before deciding what he'll do." [...] Johnson would not comment on whether another option for him would be filing a lawsuit claiming some voters were disenfranchised, or discouraged or kept from voting Saturday or in early voting." "I can't say anything until I meet with my family and my campaign team," Johnson said.click here to read more from the town talk

kalb...voting problems in alexandria city council district 4
there can be only one...
Alexandria has a hotly contested mayoral race with seven pretenders and the results should be interesting. I worked a football game at a local high school tonight and I informally surveyed a couple of folks who keep their fingers on the pulse of Alexandria politics. The conclusion...
alexandria mayor - john sams - dr sams brought on the best campaign in our opinion. he started campaiging a long time ago and despite his reputation as being a head knocker he never resorted to mud slinging. we think dr. sams wants to be mayor the most. additionally, dr. sams, we feel, would provide lots of excitement and entertainment to the blogosphere
city council at large - dr alex slatkin

additionally we recommend a constitutional amendment to limit how many constitutional amendments can appear on a ballot at one time. four or five at a time is enough. furthermore, by placing so many amendments on the ballot it cheapens the constitution it makes it look like a weak piece of paper that is so sorry that it requires massive amending all the time. that many amendments is confusing and stupid and should be stopped!
