Levin was a familiar sight around the Westside signing up voters — which Bob Pool at the Times says she did six days a week for 36 years. Levin's son says she talked with 470,000 people while out registering, and Rep. Henry Waxman said of her, "She’s amazing, an inspiration." Levin, who lived in Santa Monica, died Thursday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center from complications of a stroke, the Times says.
