Looking for Ways to Rock the Vote

Hosted by

In parts of California, this is Election Day, but not in the City of Los Angeles. Even if it were, you'd hardly notice, because fewer and fewer people bother to vote. Last time out, just 9% of those registered turned up at the polls. It turns out that a mistrust of political power has created a tiny electorate that's making all the decisions for everyone else. That's according to Jessica Levinson, professor of election law at Loyola Law School and president of the LA Ethics Commission.
