"L.A. Election Recap: Low Voter Turnout, Incumbents Stay Put, Most Measures Pass"

Jessica Levinson's latest post on about the March 8th Los Angeles City elections is here.

Here is an excerpt:

"The City's dire fiscal situation clearly did not motivate Angelenos to head to the polls. The overwhelming majority of voters made a deafening statement, one of total silence. The one thing more than 88% of voters in Los Angeles could agree on is that they would not spend the time either at a voting booth or at their kitchen table with an absentee ballot to give an opinion on many issues facing our city's government. Though, of course, a failure to vote is a declaration in and of itself."
