Say It Again
The months of overhyped media coverage are finally over, and today is the day.
No matter who you are voting for, LAist encourages everyone to get out and vote. Take a friend or two. Bring a book or an iPod to amuse you in line. If you are planning to vote with a provisional ballot, be sure to bring ID with the address that qualifies you to vote at that polling place. If you don't know where your polling place is or how late it's open, look it up.
And most of all, if you feel your vote is in jeopardy or that you are being denied any of your rights before, during or after you vote, call 1-866-OUR VOTE.

So get out there and vote, LA. Your little black dots matter.
