PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Voting in 41 local and parliamentary elections in Haiti got off to an orderly start Sunday, but turnout was low. Officials said most polling stations opened without incident in eight of Haiti's nine departments where voting was canceled or results destroyed in June elections. By noon, no more than 50 people had voted, they said.

The June election results were rejected by many of Haiti's small parties, which claimed that irregularities tipped the balance to favor President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's Lavalas Party.
