The poling site at a Ramada Inn next to Washington D.C.'s Capital Beltway is the only place for Iraqis living in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic to vote. There are four other polling places - in Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago and Nashville. Officials from the International Center for Migration, which is running the overseas voting for the Iraqi government, predict that roughly 22,000 Iraqis will vote at the Washington location.
