9:03 am
morning. pennsylvania, ohio. what's the message today on this final day? >> well, the message is first of all voters do have a choice and this past four years, it's been an indication we can't afford four more years. we need real recovery. and real change. we need somebody that has real leadership. big vision that will bring this country together. but also kick start this economy. we've had a community organizer. time for a business leader. someone who knows how to turn around economies and restored economies and brought down unemployment. who has grown jobs. who has brought down passes. this is the type of message the romney/ryan ticket brings as opposed to the last four years. credit for what he tried to do but frankly failed.
9:04 am

9:08 am
the first state likely in the country ever to go to the polls to affirm the freedom of religion but equal rights in the context of civil marriage. and that would be historic. whenever we're given a choice of moving forward or going back always move forward when it comes to extending equal rights to all of our citizens. >> and question 7, the gambling question expanding that is big. both sides have spent more than $86 million trying to sway voters. where do you think it's going to stand come tomorrow morning? >> we're going to pass question 7. about revenues staying in the state of maryland and prince georges county. $550 million leave the state of maryland and go to other places. it's going to stay here. the governor's done a great job to make sure the money goes to the education trust fund. we're going to be successful in all the ballot initiatives. >>and while we're talking about the state of maryland, you were talking about the state of virginia before we went on the
9:09 am
air here. and taking some credit for work you all have done in the state of virginia. >> i'm so proud of the marylanders moms and dads, grandparents and aunts and uncles that i've seen throughout our state. over the weekend we sent over 1100 volunteers to knock on doors with our neighbors. so the virginia polls closed at 7:00 p.m. and marylanders have been there shoulder to shoulder with our neighbors to move our country forward. and i'm so proud of the effort that's been put forward. >> did i hear you correctly that if obama wins, it will done because of the work done here? >> the number of people we've sent over to virginia and the calls that were made, i made a couple calls ourself right here in prince georges county. we know we worked hard and thank everybody who not only made calls but also went out there and knocked on doors.
9:10 am
>> thank you both for taking time. i know you are in demand good luck and pace yourself on this election day. go out and vote. you can't turn that down. check in with more voters before we go off the air here. as you can see, highly contested. it's bringing out the big names. people still trying to decide before they head in and vote. back to you. >> thank you very much. we will head live to the polls in virginia in just a few minutes. turn our attention to the district. among the items today, several ward council seats and amendments to deal with city officials convicted of wrongdoing. for more on voter turn out and more we're join odd live by the director of dc board of elections. good morning to you, sir. >> good morning. >> i guess i just want to ask how things are going so far. how are those machines this morning. how's the turn out this morning? anything you want to getout to
9:11 am
the viewers this morning? >> we're seeing a very enthusiastic turn out here in the district. what i'd like to say is bring your patience. dress warm. we are seeing long lines. we aren't having any malfunctions of any of our touch screens or m 100s. and we're just seeing long lines. >> anything to be learned mr. tatum from early voting? any issues out of that? how can you say that your vote will also be put into this big pile when we elect our next president? >> certainly. as those folks who voted in early voting had experienced, once they arrive at the touch screen or vote the paper ballots, the votes are tabulated therein stan . the most important thing is for them to be patient as they are standing
9:12 am
in line. we're seeing record turn out here and we saw that from the early voting process self. been a number of folks who have asked about the number of machines we have at our polling places and we allocated our machines on the historical turn out. we have paper ballots for every voter that turns out as well as the touch screen which is there for citizens with disabilities so they can vote unassisted if they've liked to do so. understanding and there's going to be lines because everyone's enthusiastic to come out here. >> on that ballot, it's a two sided ballot. that's how it presents on the web site. how do you make sure that voters know to flip that paper? there's extremely important issues on the backside of that ballot. >> so in training our poll workers, we've instructed them to show the voter there's a double side to the ballot.
9:13 am
as the voter steps up, the clerk flips the ballot over to both sides and reminds the voter make sure you vote both sides. we residencying any issues where the voters -- we aren't seeing any issues where the voters are skipping questions. but not because they aren't being instructed not to do so. >> executive director of elections. good luck in getting everyone's vote counted today, sir. >> thank you. >> all right. and will come in handy this election day. there's a voter information there for dc, maryland and virginia. ways to find your polling place and understand what you are voting on today. then tonight it will be your source for most of that or for the most up to date election results. right up to the minute.
9:14 am
>> all right. despite massive power outage s still crippling parts of the northeast, people there will get a chance to vote. sara is back to tell us how. >> melanie is keeping an eye on virginia. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. what a highly contested state not just for the presidential races but for the senate race. coming up, we're going to tell you guys what we found from one voter about why she is so emotional about casting her vote today. >> thank you very much. as we head to the break, here's some information on screen for you. you have a lot of time to make your vote count. polls are open until 8:00 tonight in dc and in maryland. and polls open until 7:00 p.m. in virginia. as long as you are line at 7:00 p.m., you will get to vote. 9:14. we'll be right back . .  [ mitt romney ] we have to work on a collaborative basis.
9:15 am
look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today ithis country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat.
9:16 am
i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message.
9:17 am
but to me, it's money that i earned. i'm mitt romney, man: to some people, social security is just a number. i count on social security. and i don't want washington politicians like george allen... privatizing it. if george allen wants to risk his own money on wall street... that's fine. but i don't want him risking mine. george allen just isn't watching out for us. anncr: the democratic senatorial campaign committee is... responsible for the content of this advertising.
9:18 am
our election day coverage continues right now with spotlight on ohio and its 18 electoral votes. early voting started in early october. and i guess you could say it never ended cause it could -- you can still cast votes in ohio until yesterday at 2:00 p.m. you could still cast votes. then the polls open up this morning at 6:30. ballots cast before today have been scanned in but won't be counted until the polls close in ohio at 7:30 tonight. the virginia board of elections says the number of absentee voters increased. >> but the number of registered voters decreased. so will this affect the voting in virginia? live in fairfax county now. how are the polls holding up there so far? >> reporter: so far so good. ever since this morning , 5:30
9:19 am
this morning, a steady pace. people waiting in line patient tee and happily to cast their votes. interesting you mention that about the registered voters. people are trying to see which way virginia which is a purple state is going to go. 13 electoral votes. but as we know, there's a hot less contested senate race here as well between two former governors. they are battling for jim web's seat. kaine was polling well in october but narrowed significantly. showing kaine with a less than 2 point lead. results here could be an early indicator of how the night is going to go. everyone is going to be watching that closely. doing very well. the wait reported to be about 30 minutes. it's well organized and going smoothly.
9:20 am
one woman who is especially proud to be voting today. >> i'm feeling great. as a matter of fact i'm a first time voter. you can't imagine how empowered i feel. i have voted in my own country but just became a citizen this year. but i'm excited. >> you are going to make me cry. >> it really is very emotional for me. >> and we've had a lot of people feeling that regardless of which way they are voting today. they all feel proud to be able to play a part in the democratic process. and that is overall message here. this is something that we do as americans and everybody wants to come out here on election day and do it in virginia. back to you. >> thank you. >> i love election day. i really do. >> energizing . >> yeah. it is. now, along with cleaning up and staying warm, people in the northeast hit hard are trying to figure out how to vote. >> state officials are trying
9:21 am
to make that happen. and sara is back now with more on that. definitely a hardship when you don't have a warm place to live to try to make it out to vote today. >> a lot of people in new york and new jersey are in that situation. a lot of them just try to go stay warm and get the power back on. voting may be the last thing on their minds. trying to make it easy to get out there and vote. here is what they are doing. they are driving hurricane victims to their polling sites. and distributing mail in ballots. in counties declared emergency zones, voters can fill out an affidavit ballot. authorized messengers are carrying mail in votes. comes the push to get the power back on to people in northeast. another storm is moving in and expected to hit the area tomorrow. more than 1 million homes and businesses still remain without power.
9:22 am
officials say most polling sites in both states have power and are up and running. we're seeing the worst of the worst right now that the fact any polling places would be closed down due to the storm is a big concern. a lot of people that would normally go there. trying to do the best to make sure people get out and vote. >> thanks, sara. >> at least one person was killed during explosion in north carolina. coming up, we have an update. >> plus, the search for a suspect. police need your help identifying the people in this surveillance video. what they are accused of, next. 
9:23 am
9:24 am
9:25 am
making headlines around the world, officials say 27 people are dead. 19 soldiers among them after a car explosion near baghdad. 40 other people were hurt. exploded near a military
9:26 am
base as troops were changing shifts. in north carolina, an investigation is underway after a deadly explosion this morning. one person was killed. three others hurt after the explosion at durham regional hospital. happened after 2:00 this morning on the hospital's 6th floor. some patients had to be relocated due to flooding from the sprinklers.. >> hope surveillance video can help solve a break in. two men and one woman who broke into a couple businesses two weeks ago. investigators say the suspects first tried to break in to one business but couldn't get inside. they tried and succeeded to break in to two businesses nearby. give them a call. >> 9:26 now and coming out with the early voting turn out may mean for this election and how the candidates mayfair in key battleground states. >> joins us live to go deeper
9:27 am
into this close race. look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message.
9:28 am
9:29 am
9:30 am
live look at the story of the day. it is election day. you are looking at voter turn out in the district. that is inside mlk junior library. says things are going smoothly but bring your patience. check out a book perhaps. >> maybe do that. take a book or something. cause the lines apparently are going to be long many places. which is good. means strong interest in the election. people going out to vote now. >> can discourage people if you are in some of those places where it seems like one candidate has an edge. >> here's my thinking, i don't want to be the one -- not like it's going to come down to one vote.
9:31 am
but i would feel bad if i didn't vote and didn't go the way i wanted it to. >> that's a great honor and duty to do. >> if you want to have the right to complain later, then vote. >> i want that cool sticker. >> yeah. that's where it's at. >> i like that. that will be later today . >> heads up if you are waiting in line here. you want to be prepared. on the chilly side. >> it's a gorgeous day. i noticed in h olly's live shot, it's a beautiful day. really nice looking day. although, a little on the crisp side. and slow to rebound. temperatures right now at regan national 39. 37 in gathers burg. these temperatures will climb in the mid to upper 40s. plenty of sunshine. so, again, these temperatures have been a little on the cool side and remain so
9:32 am
today with temperatures running 10 to 12 degrees below average for the first week of november. sunshine for the first part of your day. clouds move in later this afternoon. and into the nighttime hours, this is our storm system. not off the coast yet but will be later tonight. and pushes up the eastern sea board during the day tomorrow. i want to show you a couple different features. future cast. the thinking has changed a little in the past 24 hours. yesterday, we thought we were going to be impacted here in a great way. we're thinking it's going to be just far enough east that we'll be on the western edge. clouds starting to roll in. and during the day tomorrow, much of the day, that storm system stays just off shore. so if this forecast track verifies, we're not going to see a whole lot. clouds, maybe showers during the afternoon. and of course the worst will be off to our east and north. lower eastern show,
9:33 am
guaranteed to get rain. how far the west they track during the day tomorrow to see how much we're impacted here in washington. it will be out of here by thursday. let me mention again, this track is not solid here. it's been wobbling to the west and east. so we'll have to watch it care fally as we get into the overnight hours and during the day tomorrow. along the shore, this is not a good news scenario. winds gusting 40 to 60 miles per hour once again. already, a high wind watch east of the bay here for tomorrow. beach erosion coastal flooding a guarantee and heavy flooding. and right where the impacts for sandy are are worse. won't be as strong as sandy but looks like it's going to bring misery. all right. our forecast shg 48 today. winds north and east at 5 to 10. got to watch that
9:34 am
storm system carefully. we think the worst will track to our east. and nice warmup here for the weekend. veteran's day sunday. we observe it on monday. temperatures by monday for the holiday back in the mid 60s. that's a little better. that's a look at the forecast. back to you at the desk. >> thanks very much, tucker. it is estimated that a million people in maryland and the district of columbia voted before election day. and millions more are expected at the polls in this tight presidential race. joining us now with analysis is michael who reaches public policy at george mason university. also an author. republicans and the black vote came out. thanks for coming in. first of all we mentioned the early voting. does the number of people who have voted early particularly in this area suggest anything in
9:35 am
particular to you? >> there is a conventional wisdom that is beginning to develop that suggests the campaign that has the best ground game will likely see results in the early voting. over the course of the last few years you've seen the proportion of early voters increase 40% in some states. that has made it a bit more difficult to gauge in some of the more competitive states if both campaigns are relatively similar ground games. >> am i right in thinking that traditionally when we thought about early voters? we thought about voters who were very energized to change whatever party was in power. is that still the case or not necessarily so? >> what you are more likely to see are energized voters and senior voters. in many cases they will have more time to go out and vote. and those who are traveling for business or whatever reason, they can vote early and travel and not worry
9:36 am
about rushing back. >> you mentioned the ground game. it's interesting. this is not something the media focuses a lot on leading up to an election. i've been reading articles that talk about how well organized the obama ground game is in some ways more organized than it was in 2008. and how more organized the republican ground game this time around and how they learned lessonsment how important are those ground games going to be? >> absolutely critical. generally has a better structure in place because they've done it before. the republican nominee in this case, governor romney is building on what happened in 2008. 2008 wasn't successful for the party. but he has been running for president for a very long time and has had an tount build his ground game overtime. and so for that reason and given the enormous amount of money that both candidates have. neither campaign can say we
9:37 am
really didn't have the resources we needed to build the structure. >> earlier we talked to lenny from american university. and we were talking about the battleground states. and he was saying that virginia, we know it's a battleground state. but he thinks virginia in some ways may be the key state. how do you view that? >> here's what i'm going to be looking for at about 8:00, what happened in arlington, fairfax and prince william? did the president over perform his numbers from 2008? did governor romney over perform or under perform from 2008? those numbers will tell a lot about what goes on in the rest of the state. president obama won those three counties in 2008 and split the rest of the state with senator mccain. that's one of the things you want to look for. and particularly ohio and florida. you also have very small county regional areas you
9:38 am
can look at and say this might determine what's going to happen in the rest of the state. >> you're a professor of public policy and analyze these types of things quite a bit. super packs. they have really made a difference in this election in terms of the money available, the ads that we see. has that been to the advantage of the voter or not? >> if by advantage you mean getting a chance to see more negative ads, yes it is. there was a great concern among democrats that the citizens united decision will result in an uneven playing field. at least in this election that has not proven to be the case. raised enormous amounts of money. both campaigns have raised over a billion dollars each to run the election. so we don't have to worry about it in terms of the overall playing field. but i do have a
9:39 am
question about the extent to which it drowns out other candidates and ideas that can't get the support. >> very interesting. mike fauntroy. i'm sure we'll be talking to you again. thanks for coming in. 9:39 now. we'll be right back .
9:40 am
9:41 am
9:42 am
shall we talk about something other than the election? >> let's do that. let's crack open the buzz bin. no doubt has pulled new music video after learning it offended native americans. this is the picture from the music video. it's from the new song called looking hot. features the band members wearing native american and cowboy attire. in a statement the group says it apologizes.
9:43 am
no word from the village people. christian bell and dax shepard is expecting their first child. who is this guy? >> some other. not known if it's a boy or a girl. but an rep says the baby is due in the spring. bell did have morning sickness but now back to work on her movie or television show. but says they won't marry until same sex marriage is legal. politics coming in there even though we tried to step away for a second. in support of everyone. >> lines started forming before the sun came up this morning. live around the area. need a little release. as people head out to cast their votes. melanie? >> reporter: yeah, 13 electoral
9:44 am
votes up for grabs here. record amounts of time and money poured into the commonwealth. after tomorrow, virginians will be happy no more campaign ads. my colleague is standing live. >> reporter: good morning. we are live here in maryland where issues such as gambling and gay marriage are bringing voters out. an interesting trend we've already seen developing. we'll have that live next on fox 5 morning news. stay with us. where others fail, droid powers through.
9:45 am
introducing the new droid razr maxx hd by motorola. now more than ever droid does.
9:46 am
look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. i'm mitt romney, we had a good group of people. good group of employees out there. this was a booming place. and mitt romney and bain capital turned it in to a junk yard.
9:47 am
i was suddenly, 60 years old. i had no health care. mainly i was thinking about my family. how am i going to take care of my family. he promised us the same things he's promising the united states. and he'll give you the same thing he gave us. nothing. anncr: priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. welcome back. it's 9:47 the number of absentee voters increased by more than 2% since 2008. >> in addition to the election, voters have several key issues to decide on. melanie has been in virginia all morning long.
9:48 am
and she is live with us once again. how has that voter turn out been? i know it was a pretty steady stream. >> reporter: looks good. the entire parking lot here is full and pretty much been that way since we got here at 5:30. you mentioned those absentee numbers. one of the things analysts are going to be looking at. voter registration is actually down from 2008 by almost 190,000 voters. that could be something significant. changes to the voter id law as well which perhaps people will be looking at and seeing whether that might have any impact. and as we know, a big battleground state. it is one of the first battleground states to have the polls open. one of the first states where the polls will close. close around 7:00 tonight. early indicator of how the night will go. turn out has been good. the wait reported to be about 30 minutes. not too
9:49 am
long. people telling us it's organized and going smoothly. another big race here in virginia. democrat kaine and allen are in a tight rain. lead was good in october has narrowed significantly. the most recent polls showing kiane with less than 2 point lead. they are going to go around the state and try to do campaigning. allen in mount virginia and kiaine in virginia. >> i'm optimistic that virginians will stand strong for freedom and opportunity for all. >> going to do all we can to encourage people to turn out today. it's been a long campaign. and kind of feel good about the race we've won and the vision we've laid out. now it's in the voters hands. i feel good to be here on election day. >> have you been surprised
9:50 am
virginia has been a close contest this year? >> not really. i feel like we've worked our way. >> two questions people have to talk about. one will be on eminent domain and putting tougher penalties on the state. there's also a question to move the general assemblies. their veto session if they need to do so. i mentioned earlier, voter id. that could come into play this year if the race is very close this year. if it comes down to provisional ballots. could be a difference maker. this year if you did not have one of the forms of valid id, have to cast a provisional ballot and not be counted until friday when they have to come back to the election officials and validate that vote. if it comes down to the provisional ballots, could be interesting here in virginia. >> all right. thank you very much. >> polls in maryland stay open until 8:00 tonight.
9:51 am
>> couple of hot button ballot questions appear to be helping bring out the vote in maryland. live at a polling station in largo with more. >> reporter: good morning to you. this has been a busy place since 5:30 this morning. both governor omalley was here and baker doing last minute stumping. you can see there still is a line. and on average, it's taking people about 45 minutes to an hour to get through. there are several key questions on the ballot but two that are really hot button topics a lot of voters are talking about. question 6 and 7. question 6 legalizes gay marriage. question 7 would expand gambling and build a new casino here in prince georges county. both governor and the executive were strongly for 6 and 7. but everyone is not. and in a small sampling we did in talking to voters, we found if someone was against question 6, they were also against 7.
9:52 am
>> i'm not into redefining marriage. i believe it's between a man and a woman. civil unions is okay but going beyond that is a little much for me. >> i believe same sex marriage wasn't in the word and i don't believe it should be anything that's legalized. >> i'm not against it but i'm not for it. >> it would be good if the money did stay in the state but i am morally against gambling. i'm torn between the two and say i'm against gambling so i don't want an is a casino in my state. >> money never goes where it's supposed to government it's always branched out to somewhere else. the schools may get some of that money. they are not going to get the full amount the reason they are going to have. they want it to pass. >> i think it will bring more trouble. gambling is more
9:53 am
robberies. more people unable to pay for their homes. their children's education. i'm not having it. >> reporter: everything single person we talked to here said they were voting for president obama. there are 9 congressional representatives that are also be voted for here including one u.s. senator. polls stay open until 8:00 tonight. back to you in the studio. >> thank you. up to the mini lex coverage. >> coming up after the break, how you can follow the results. we'll be right back. ht back.
