Today is Tuesday, May 21, and here is what's happening in Los Angeles:
It's Election Day. Check out KPCC's voter guide for details on the ballot.
Older, whiter voters are likely to decide today's election, according to the Los Angeles Times. "Latinos, the city's dominant ethnic group and a key voting bloc, make up 44 percent of the city's population, U.S. Census figures show. But a USC Price/Los Angeles Times poll of likely voters last week suggests Latinos will make up 24 percent of those who cast ballots Tuesday, in part because many are immigrants who are ineligible to vote," according to The Times.
Which Way, LA? marks the end of the campaign with Dan Schnur, Sherry Bebitch Jeffe and Fernando Guerra.
Wendy Greuel and supporters will spend election night at the Exchange in downtown.
Eric Garcetti and supporters will be at the Hollywood Palladium for election night.
