36. LA: Democrats, GOP push to register more La. voters
A Democratic organization, hoping to capitalize on Barack Obama's presidential run, has obtained the names of thousands of people in four major parishes to be added to Louisiana's voter registration lists.

The state GOP plans a counter-drive to increase Republican registration, Party Chairman Roger Villere of Metairie said.

The Democratic group, called Voting Is Power, is financed by the national Democratic Party.

Volunteers have been canvassing neighborhoods since February, collecting personal information and signatures from as many new potential voters as possible, said Brian Welsh, a spokesman for Louisiana Victory, an umbrella group coordinating Democratic voter drives.
