6:02 pm
the governor has a responded to the covid-19 pandemic under newsome. the state has had the highly restrictive pandemic policies, something that elder has been against these 2 candidates some have been trading barbs over the past couple of days leading up to today to today. newsom saying that elder is a climate in iran against women's rights. well, elder says that newsome can't defend his record on anything from crime to homelessness to the high cost of living here in california. the governor today saying that he was disgusted with some republicans that are already claiming that the election results in this recall election will be rigged. embarrassing to respond to that because it's on us. they're making stuff up. it's hurting our country. forget this election guys like me come and go. we're dime a dozen politicians quite literally a dime, a dozen. it's about our institutions about this nation. it's about trust and confidence. i 's about who we are. it's about citizens feeling empowered and that their voice matters.
6:03 pm
well, the governor's strategy has been suggesting voters to simply vote no on the recall and leave the rest of the ballot blank registered voters for democrats largely outnumber republicans in the state but polling has shown that conservatives have really been vote of 8 id to vote in this recall. as we mentioned at the top of the show. the governor is expected to be here in sacramento tonight as those election results roll in. but we have not been given any information as to whether or not he will be making any sort of public appearances. that's the list here live at the state capitol in sacramento, dan thorn kron 4 thank you, dan and our team coverage continues now in the south bay, the registrar's office continues to receive ballots and. >> welcome last minute voters. their security is also a big priority at the registrar's office. >> our kron four's, rob fladeboe joins us now live fire in santa clara county with more on how volunteers are keeping those ballots. a big, big issue, at least for some people, right. rob.
6:04 pm
>> train felt we talk a little bit about election security this time around. you heard the governor there talking earlier and also in the last few days about a lot of loose. talk about election most of it without in fact, almost all of it without evidence. you have to wonder if maybe some of this is having a bit of an impact on people with regard maybe not trusting the process. maybe it's just human nature. i don't know. but as i've been the folks here drop off their ballots. take a look at the video here of noticed the phenomenon here that a lot of people actually want to witness that ballot going into the slot themselves. in fact, number of people are parking their cars and physically walking the belly up to the ballot box. in fact, a few people don't even want the volunteers here handling the ballot is the same inside a lot of people a sensitive about being photographed as they are voting and they don't want me watched them. put the ballot in the box. but in any case, we don't know exactly what's going on there. whether
6:05 pm
this has an impact on things or not or affect voter turnout. only time will tell. but i did have a chance to talk to the register voters about this and she insists that there is no fraud going on. let's hear more now from the registrar. shannon was shay. >> we have so many security features processes steps involved, even going back before someone boat before we even conduct the elections, we test every single piece of voting machine for accuracy. and we do a logic and accuracy testing of all the so we're already starting security steps way before a voter actually boats. we never leave ballots with one person and you must have 2 people with ballots at all times. they're physically secured at night or staff go online the line of great. we you know, it's locked room. we have cameras on our voting equipment and processing area. so i have no evidence in santa clara county of any widespread voter fight.
6:06 pm
>> now, the registrar also points out that none of the machines involved in the counting of ballots are connected to the internet she says the possibility of a hacking virtually impossible security is very tight in here. there are sheriff's deputies on patrol inside even more security outside. every a box said you see arriving here under lock and key and back out here live. as i said earlier, people dropping off their ballots here. many of very sensitive about this. they want to actually see the ballot go into the box if maybe they are not this mistrustful of the process or just want to make sure that everything is going the way they would like to see it. so that's the latest here from vicki. we'll have more for you coming up throughout the evening. back to you. >> all right. sounds good. thank you, rob. well, maybe still haven't turned in your ballot. it is not too late. mail in ballots were sent out to all previously registered voters got him in the mail. if you are still planning to mail your ballot. back in. you need
