It's an a relatively unknown event supporting an important grassroots city function that's garnered little attention, but at 2 p.m. today the polls will open to the public in 11 San Fernando Valley neighborhoods. Yes, it's election day for some neighborhood councils. Save for a Daily News editorial by Councilman Paul Krekorian, there hasn't been much buzz about them (but do neighborhood councils ever get that much buzz in the first place?). Neighborhoods involved in today's election are Reseda, Tarzana, Lake Balboa, Encino, Van Nuys, Mid-Town North Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Valley Glen, Valley Village, and Toluca Lake. Polls close at 8 p.m. Locations are listed here.
