NPR's Richard Gonzales joins host Neal Conan from San Francisco, Calif., where the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an injuction postponing the California recall vote. The American Civil Liberties Union sued to stop the election, citing the poor reliability of punch-card voting systems. Other factors included members of the armed forces and California National Guard currently serving overseas who will need to request absentee ballots, as well as a number of poorer precincts that would not have time to prepare for the planned Oct. 7 vote.
