    Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.

    Election day features the race for LA mayor involving councilmember Eric Garcetti and city controller Wendy Greuel. The candidates, vying for the seat vacated by outgoing Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, were the top two vote-getters in the March primary election.

    Four measures are on the ballot, including three medical marijuana issues that seek to either curb the number of dispensaries or allow new ones to open.

    The proposition with the most votes wins, but only if it collects a majority. If none of the measures pass, the issue could return to the City Council.

    Businessman Ron Galperin and LA City Councilman Dennis Zine face each other in the race for controller. City Attorney Carmen Trutanich faces Assemlyman Mike Feuer in the city attorney's race.
