Mayor Hahn and his opponent, Antonio Villaraigosa, are all over the city today trying to excite voters for tomorrow's election. Well, maybe Hahn is trying to convince people to stay home. Villaraigosa's lead is probably much less so if there is low voter turnout. The challenger needs to energize the masses while the incumbent should be confusing and annoying enough of the populace that they throw up their hands in disgust at our electoral process. LA Observed has their full schedules.

If we're still up and about tonight maybe we'll go for a hot dog at Pink's and see how Antonio looks after 19 hours on the campaign trail.
