The DLANC board of directors meets in the lobby of the Los Angeles Theatre in September of 2009.

What's a better small town activity than having a meet and greet for local political candidates at the neighborhood supermarket?

The Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood council's election is coming up this Friday, June 25, and candidates for the 28-seat board of directors will be making their way to Ralphs (645 W. 9th) this evening to meet some neighbors and try to drum up voter turnout.

52 candidates will be listed on the ballot, though only 13 of the 28 seats will decided by races in which there are more candidates than seats. Most popular is the Arts, Cultural and Education Interests Director position, with eight candidates vying for only three seats. Both the At-Large Director and South Park Business Director positions have four candidates running for a single seat.

Friday's election runs from 2 to 8pm in order to accomodate both those who live and work Downtown, and will take place at The Exchange (114 W. 5th). More information can be found on the DLANC election website.

The Ralphs meet and greet will run from 6:30 to 8pm. No word on whether candidates will carry your groceries in exchange for a vote.
