Vote right now in Los Angeles Leimert Park

I was one of only 62 that made it to my polling place as of this afternoon.

Los Angeles Council District 8 Candidate Forum this Thursday March 2 in your neighborhood!

Why does it matter? Why should I vote? I already voted in 2008. I don't know the candidates. I don't know the issues. I don't have access to google. I can't afford facebook. Twitter is useless.
