Election day is here

While many have voted by mail, many others braved the wet weather on Tuesday to vote in person.

As the rain falls from the sky, a steady stream of voters dart from their car to a polling station and a ballot drop box in Westlake Village.

"Of course I'm out to vote," one voter told KCLU News.

"It could have been a huge blizzard or storm, I don't care what, I was ready to vote today" another told KCLU. "I think there's a lot of important measures and things on the ballot."

One voter even stopped to take a selfie as he dropped his ballot in the box.

"It was very important to vote because I believe in democracy and I believe, sadly, democracy is on the ballot," the voter told KCLU.

"It's important to vote, if you don't vote, you can't complain," he said.
