Elections tomorrow

The Los Angeles mayor's race is tomorrow. Mayor James Hahn and--to a lesser extent--Antonio Villaraigosa have succeeded in throwing enough mud that most people, including reporters such as an NPR correspondent I heard this morning, have given up on trying to differentiate the candidates. This, of course, is Hahn's only chance to win.

Tomorrow is also the last day to vote in Oakland's monthlong mail-in city-council special election. A recent East Bay Express article explained how the election's winner-take-all format (no primary or run off, instant or otherwise), could hurt progressive candidates including Green Party candidate Aimee Allison.
