debate. but tonight everything is on the line. election day goes both public and personal as her campaign makes a final push to get voters to the polls. after all of those months campaigning in pennsylvania and across the country, it all comes down this room in new york city, where supporters will gather to see hillary clinton take the stage. malcolm came from philadelphia to be in new york for the event. >> this is history and we're in it so it's difficult right now to grasp really the weight of this moment. >> reporter: it's clear this moment was thought out. from above, you can see the country, alaska and hawaii to the side, it's all here where this volunteer wanted to see it for himself.
>> i wanted to be here, wanted to be in the crowd and see the look on her face when she becomes president. >> reporter: not everyone will fit in that room that i showed you and the clinton campaign says they have setup and ov overflow area for those who want to be here. >> donald trump cast his vote on manhattan's east side this morning. voting alongside him was his wife melania and daughter ivanka. we're told he spent the rest of the day working on his speeches. what you heard was the reaction when trump arrived to cast his ballot this morning. seemingly a mixture of cheers and boos. nbc10's erin coleman is following trump today, she joins us live from democracy plaza. >> you caught one a trump surrogate from pa.

c'mon in, pop pop! happy birthday! i survived a heart attack. i'm doing all i can to keep from having another one. and i'm taking brilinta. for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin. no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers,
a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. >>talk to your doctor about brilinta. i'm doing all i can. that includes brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astra zeneca may be able to help.
