"My eight-year-old son and I went to the poll in Los Angeles right when it opened at 7:00 am. The line was around the block, but it moved quickly - we were in and out in half an hour. While we waited in line, I explained to my son all the ballot propositions. We glossed right over the county proposition requiring porn stars to wear condoms. Not ready to explain that one to my son at 7:00 in the morning."
