SOUTHGATE, Mich. (AP) – Hundreds of Iraqis streamed into polling places
in five U.S. cities Friday, the first day they could vote in their
homeland’s election. Nearly 26,000 people have registered to vote in
five U.S. metropolitan areas with heavy Iraqi populations: Detroit,
Chicago, Nashville, Tenn., Los Angeles and Washington.

Tens of thousands more are expected to vote in 13 other countries during balloting that runs through Sunday.
