Steve Lopez: Is it worth voting in L.A.? Listen to teen's story

No doubt, lazy Angelenos will come up with dozens of reasons not to vote Tuesday, when jobs for mayor, city council, school board and community college board are up for grabs.

Check out her video above and let us know whether you plan to vote, and if not, why not.
