News From Iraq:Iraqi Americans across Michigan are to vote today at polling sites in Warren and Dearborn for Iraq’s parliamentary election.

Iraqi immigrants and Iraqi Americans born in the U.S. are eligible to vote if they have proof of their Iraqi ancestry, said election organizers. Polls are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today, Saturday, and Sunday.

Voters inside Iraq and in other countries with sizeable Iraqi populations are to also vote in the election.

Aziz Hanna, who is in charge of voting for Iraqi Americans in Michigan, said thousands are expected to vote in Michigan, which has the highest concentration of Iraqi Americans in the U.S. There are also Iraqi-American voting centers in California, Washington, D.C., Tennessee and Illinois.

Campaign fliers that advertise Iraqi political parties have been put up in recent weeks at stores and centers in Sterling Heights, Warren, West Bloomfield, Dearborn and Detroit.
