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

Polls open in two hours for the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council's 2010 board election, running from 2 to 8pm inside The Exchange (114 W. 5th).

52 candidates representing residential, business and community interests will be listed on the ballot, though only 13 of 28 seats are races in which there are more candidates than spots. More information can be found on the DLANC election website.

Just three months after moving from USC to the Historic Core in 2004, I unexpectedly found myself elected to the DLANC board of directors. After a phone call from Brady Westwater, someone I had barely met at the time, I showed up to a special election to vote and instead ended up finding myself elected.

I had no clue what I was getting myself into -- heck, I didn't even know what seat I had been elected to at the time -- but my three years on the council were a major part of shaping my understanding of Downtown and my fascination with this unique community. Some of my earliest writings that later turned into blogdowntown were recaps of council meetings that I attended.

So go vote. You never know what might happen.
