LA picks new mayor after low-drama campaign

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles is about to elect its next mayor. But, most residents probably won't notice.

Low turnout is expected Tuesday when voters choose between Democrats Eric Garcetti, a city councilman, and city Controller Wendy Greuel, who could become the first woman to hold the job.

The two occupy so much of the same policy turf they've been dubbed "Greucetti."

One of them will succeed Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (vee-yah-ry-GOH'-sah) who's leaving office July 1 after two terms.

Only one of four voters in the nation's second most populous city is projected to cast a ballot, possibly a historical low.

And the tightness of the race suggests a winner might not emerge on Election Day, and it might take days to count all the ballots.
