What’s it going to take to get Angelenos out to the polls? How about some cold hard cash... like $25,000? If you happen to live in the Los Angeles Unified School Board’s 5th district, you’ll be entered in what’s being called a Voteria: anyone who votes—legally—in that district’s election will automatically be entered to win $25,000. It’s the initiative of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project, which is trying to find ways to get people out to the polls.
