voted early. this gives election officials just an idea how high voter turnout will be overall. it is not too late to mail it in but you need it post marked today. voting locations stay open until 8:00 tonight. today voters in three bay area cities are deciding whether or not to make sugary drinks more expensive. they will decide whether there should be a one cent per ounce tax on sugary drinks. right now the cities of berkeley, philadelphia and chicago are the only ones in the u.s. that have taxes on sugary drinks. voters in boulder, colorado are deciding whether to add a two cent per ounce act. there are two propositions that relate to the death penalty. proposition 66 would keep the death penalty but speed up the appeals process in part by

hiring more attorneys to represent inmates. which ever prop wins by the biggest margin will become the new law. if both are successful. and then there is proposition 64. it would make recreational use of marijuana legal for people age 21 and older. it includes detailed rules for the growing, selling and consumption of the drug. this is the result of a two- year analysis of the legalization of marijuana in washington and colorado. he says the california initiative is stricter but flexible if any future changes are needed. if it passes it will allow the growing and possession of marijuana immediately but it could take a year for retail sales of the drug to begin. for a complete list of all of the propositions on the ballot, just head off to ktvu.com. now to developing news and a startling discovery in oakland this morning. about a block away from
12:06 pm
highland hospital. somebody abandoned a newborn baby. >> list are going door to door trying to find the baby's parents. alex savidge is in oakland with whackly what happened. alex. >> reporter: yeah. really an incredible story. good afternoon to you guys. two women who happened to be driving by heard the cries of a baby out of their window. they stopped their car this morning and got out and started looking around and they found that newborn baby lying right there on the sidewalk, next to those construction cones. this is near a home under construction on 19th avenue at the intersection with east 27th street. those two good samaritans immediately grabbed the child and drove the baby to the emergency room at highland hospital which is a block away from here. the baby has been evaluated and doctors say the baby is doing fine. the discovery was made about 10:00 this morning. oakland police officers after that were going door to door in this area, checking in with neighbors to see if anybody saw
12:07 pm
anything. police say there certainly are other options for parents in a case like this who don't believe they can care for their newborn child. >> you can take a newborn child to any fire station in the city of oakland with no questions asked. we prefer that than leaving the child abandoned where they are susceptible to not only the elements that we have out when they're open and exposed but also possible dangers leading all the way up to death. in this case, we're very lucky. >> reporter: yeah. police say this case could have ended differently if the newborn would have been sat out there longer exposed to the elements. it is a warm day in oakland today. police officers are checking surveillance video from this neighborhood. and, again, talking with anyone who may be a witness in this case, trying to figure out who left this baby behind. investigators say if you have any information on who the
12:08 pm
parents are or who may have left the child here on this sidewalk this morning, you should put in a call to oakland police. there is according to police the possibility of charges in this case but more importantly they want to find out who the parents are and figure out what the story is here and see if there may be some services that could be offered to the parents. again, that newborn baby, we don't know if it is a boy or girl but the baby is doing fine this afternoon after being treated at highland hospital. >> alex, i'm assuming that the infant is getting the care it needs and will likely be -- in sort of a foster family. let's talk about the fact that it is a newborn. was the baby truly newly born or was it just a very young infant. >> reporter: yes. >> wow. so it was born this morning and abandoned. >> reporter: yes. >> wow. >> reporter: we don't know the exact time frame and we don't know exactly where the mother gave birth to this child. but we noah according to the informing from police that this
12:09 pm
was quite clearly a child that had been born this morning, in the hours leading up to this discovery here in this neighborhood. >> just stunning. thank goodness that the baby is getting help. the investigation continues. >> reporter: absolutely. >> thank you. getting from one side of the bay in just a minutes in a beautiful way as well. coming up in 15 minutes, we will show you a private ferry service that could help ease your long commute. we're keeping a close eye on your forecast. meteorologist rosemary orozco will let you know if you can wear shorts the rest of the week. before we go into every break this newscast, a look at who people are voting for today. >> i voted for hillary. i mean honestly i'm a registered republican and i'm very, very disappointed in the development of our party. and just looking at the two candidates, there was really only one option.

12:13 pm
staff for the get out of the vote movement. there a lot going on in both campaigns. did you vote, did you vote. they're offering i'm sure a senior citizens rides to the polling place. both candidates need to turn out the vote. mrs. clinton would benefit more from a big turnout. trump has brought a lot of people in and he wants to make sure that they are not discouraged by the polls and vote today. >> i was watching some of the network coverage. you can see the long lines in states like pennsylvania, which is encouraging. it is good to see. >> yeah. >> let's say you're the campaign manager for both of them, trump and clinton. do you look back at it come tomorrow. we will start with clinton, what would you do differently. >> i'm going to give the answer for both of them. the same answer. >> perfect. >> the mistakes they made on were early on, pushing the buttons of the other is they made this as we talked about
12:14 pm
before a campaign about running against the other person and not promoting themselves. a lost the votes we will be looking at tonight and the next day or so were votes against somebody, not votes for somebody. i think that's what was hissing in this campaign. one of the things that barack obama did well in the primary in 2008 is in addition to negating some of her arguments which were not really negative but he challenged her on that, he had a challenging message and he brought the word hope back into the campaign. i think both have been so focused in this death struggle on attacking one another that the mistake that they made is voters like to see a good fight but they want to know at the end that it will be okay and somebody is going to lead us to the promised land. if all we get is negative, we feel negative. that discourages people from voting and makes people feel not happy about the results no matter how they turn out. >> we happen to be in the city
12:15 pm
of oakland. oakland is considering a new soda tax. >> yeah. >> one cent tax for sugary beverages. >> yeah. so you're asking how do i think it will go? >> yeah. >> we did talk about this here on ktvu sometime before. there are good arguments or good questions to be raised about this particular measure having to do with where the money goes. as it turns out it goes into the city of oakland's general fund. people are not always trustful about the city council or administration how they will spend the money. they might have seen a little more detail how the money will be spent. most of the claims made in this race against the -- it's more than a soda tax. it is awe sugary drink tax like red bull. >> yes. >> most of the claims on measure hh prove to be misrepresentations or fat out
12:16 pm
false. there is linkage between overconsumption of sugary drinks, you're a mom, you have to monitor how much they're eating of processed sugar. there is linkage between that and obesity. most cancer researchers say the best way to beat cancer is get our arms around obesity. it is not the only one but it is a big one. in poor communities, for example, in oakland, west oakland and east oakland, you know, the marketing is furious for teenagers and younger to buy drinks. now if you go to one of these place that's are complaining about this, they don't have regular -- the regular cans of coke, they offer you something bigger and you don't get the choice of the smaller size anymore. >> do you think it will pass. >> i think it will pass in the end because a lot of people are nervous about this. i have to say while i think most of the claims made by those against it have proven to be false, including bringing bernie sanders into this.
12:17 pm
he distanced him from this and said vote for this in the end, they have been really vigorous in all of the campaigning. you mentioned we have thousands of mailers going out to lots of people. what happened in berkeley seems to have worked. if it works in oakland as well, you will see more of the measures throughout most of the country. >> we have to go. if trump loses, does he say this campaign was worth it? what do you think? >> well, probably not right away. but -- >> down the road. >> with the benefit of time he will look back and think what a wonderful process it was. running for office of any kind, speaking personally, connect you to your community unlike any other activity that you will do. even though it hurts to lose, you feel good about the connection that you made. and voting by the way, i voted today. >> i see your sticker. >> becomes a little more personal and good for you. >> okay. we're going to bring you back throughout the afternoon starting with the 4 on 2. >> we continue our election coverage throughout the day.
