Handicapping LA's Off-Cycle Election

Hosted by

Tomorrow's voters could change 100 years of political history in the City of Los Angeles. They could make future elections coincide with those at the state and federal levels -- increasing voter turnout with a major impact on political power and money. The City Council is in for change with familiar members being termed out while others face challenges, and LA Unified School Board elections could decide the future of charter schools and standardized testing.

Also, remember Citizens' United? Just check your mailbox to see the impact of outside money on local elections.
