President Gordon calls for strong measures to ensure city voters in and out of the city have the chance to vote in next month’s city elections
New Orleans – The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has asked the U. S. Department of Justice to block the scheduled elections in New Orleans because there is not enough time to ensure a fair election process before the scheduled date of April 22.
