challenged votes. donald trump's campaign filed a lawsuit against the clark county registrar of voters. anchor christianne klein has been looking into the lawsuit and joins us with an update. ((christianne klein)) >> judge gloria sturman denied the trump campaign's directing the clark county registrar of voters joe gloria to preserve names of poll workers and separate ballots from early voters in four voting sites. this is one of those polling sites in dispute.. cardenas market.. the trump campaign alleges that polls were kept open past closing on the last day of early voting and that they believe people were allowed to vote that were not in line when polls were supposed to close earlier in the evening. judge sturman was firm.. saying she found it disturbing that
3:05 pm
to harassment and ridicule- saying they are just doing their civic duty.. she also said the trump campaign failed to exhaust their administrative remedy.. essentially saying the next step was to inform the secretary of state of any issue- not bring the matter to court.. trump campaign attorneys argued that they wanted the court to issue an order to preserve all records- including time of votes to challenge any votes posted after 8 pm.. and polls workers identities.. ((brian hardy/trump campaign attorney// judge gloria sturman/district court- clark county it all hao at it. if the secretary of state comes back and says no i don't find there are any violations and we want to challenge that we have a right to do that.. but we can't do that if we don't have evidence.. judge: right but it's got to follow proper proceedure.. aren't we missing like 7 steps in this whole process and there's no notice to the secretary of state or anyone else in this election violation report that they're being challenged.. there's somebody who says they saw catherin cortez masto hand something to someone at the polling place in violation of the laws.. why didn't she get notice? lawyer: cause it has nothing to do with them..
3:06 pm
((christianne klein)) >> a spokesman for clark county says the county already preserves its early-voting records as required by state law- and that on friday, most if not all of the county's early voting locations had lines of voters when their scheduled closing time passed. they say as has been our practice for many, many years... those early voting locations continued processing voters until the lines were gone. ((denise valdez)) huge here in nevada -- more than 500 thousand cast their ballots. so it's no surprise it's been a busy election day at polls across the valley. it's been smooth -- but the process means patience for the thousands who hit the polls during the rush this morning. we have team coverage on election day turnout -- katie boer is is at canarelli middle school. but first lets go to karen castro who's at keller middle school where they're expecting another round of crowds once people get off work. karen? ((karen castro))
3:07 pm
little quiet inside but i'm told there was a rush of voters this morning and they expect another rush later this evening. we want to show you video of some early birds. voters at elizondo and cheyenne high schools showed up to vote bright and early to avoid the crowds. many voters started lining up before the polls even opened at seven this morning. here's what they had to say about casting their ballots. ((edward walker - voter: i missed early voting and i just wanted to be one of the first to get in and get out. cindy jones - voter: today is anothr being recorded because the opportunity and the sacrifice that have been made for us to vote is something that i will always want to continue. casey davis - first time voter: it was cool to get to experience something, you know, that everybody does every election and finally get to part take it in it myself as an adult.))

3:16 pm
i think the first one, remember over the weekend there was the whole dust up about people in line to early vote, being allowed to vote past the closing of the polls. it was donald trump mentioning it, michael mcdonald. that came to a head going to court today. >> the state law is clear. if somebody is in line at the time the polls are supposed to close, the scheduled closing time, that person can stay in line and vote. so i think the question that they're raising here is were there people in line -- w into line after that scheduled closing time, and if those people did, are the votes valid. i think that's what the trump campaign was talking about, although this court hearing today asking the judge to preserve the names of the poll workers, just in case they need to be interrogated for the future lawsuit, i think was kind of amusing and the judge found it a little bit offensive. so they didn't really get anything out of that.
3:17 pm
requires. >> we saw a record number of early voters, by voter number, actual participation this year. 133,000 voters, additionally hit the polls today. here they're open until 7:00. that's 9% of the electorate. when you add that to 51%, what do you make of what we could see? >> yeah, i was anticipating more because in the last 2 presidential elections we had 80% of the voters turn out. we may not number. we'll see. if we did, we'd need about 400,000 people to vote at a. and doesn't look like so far based on the numbers that we see there the secretary of state we'll get there. >> we were looking at 2:00. we'll see what happens from 3-7, could be the big rush before the polls close, getting off work. well, big races tonight. obviously, the president, congressional district, u.s. senate. what else are you watching? what are some of the themes we'll see?
3:18 pm
protection -- kidding. obviously, the senate race, but i think if you get -- when you get into the state legislature, there is about 3 senate district. there is one in henderson, solarland, but i'll be watching, those will determine who controls the senate. whether democratics are in charge or not. and then, of course, a handful of assembly seats determined who controls the assembly. >> one seat is split. if a libertarian is e lected that could be very interesting. we'll watch that all evening. we'll have analysis as well so you want to keep it rye here on 8 news now for national and local election coverage. >> we started off mild this morning, mild night for elections. not much wind at all, looking
