>> reporter: they are not only fired up, but extremely confident going into tonight, even before the first set of results come in. the reason why i'm a saying there is absolutely no scenario in which they lose tonight, spiking the football towards the end of the game. they are also dealing with accusations of voter fraud from the other side. the governor kicking off the day in san francisco, meeting with union leaders and making his final pitch, with larry elder launching a voter fraud website now muddling the election day message. >> it's wrong what they are doing. it's really wrong. it's not only wrong, it is reprehensible. larry elder would be best to accept the results as i will, no matter what the outcome. >> the only people that will vote to recall him, it won't matter what kind of shenanigans if there are any to take place. >> reporter: the former chairman blasted elder, treating it is the most irresponsible act i
have ever seen from a california candidate in my 20 years in politics here. >> is a very confusing strategy to both tell your voters did not vote by mail early, and said to vote at the polls, then come election day, tell them their vote might not count because of voter fraud. >> reporter: early returns show a substantial difference between democrats and republicans. more than 9 million ballots returned. 53% from democrats, 26% from republicans. the rest from independents and others translating to 2.3 million more returned ballots from democrats. >> we did see some ticking up of republican votes especially in the putting centers, where they became a really large share of the ballots that were being cast, but not in the same numbers that would be necessary for them to really tilt the selection. mac throughout the election cycle, the chairwoman of the california gop has been encouraging voters to turn in those mail-in ballots.

five months on this campaign, that it is done right, and it is and with integrity. we saw two recall candidates casting last-minute balance today. caitlyn jenner but a beverly hills city hall, and the youtube star kevin cast his ballot in ventura. we will have special coverage of the recall election beginning tonight on the kpix 5 news at 7:00. real-time news updates on those returns will continue throughout the evening on cbsn bay area , plus county by county results on kpix.com . we will have all of the latest election news right here beginning tomorrow morning at 4:30. new at six:00, witness testimony began today in the elizabeth holmes theranos trial. len ramirez reports a former employee who became a key whistleblower against the company took the stand. >> reporter: today's testimony really seemed to illustrate the transformational change that
