7:12 am
vors registering potentially as independent voters but likely not voting for donald trump. that could be somethg,to it is look the make-uhe demographic make-up o what we ing of as an independent. that might be changing, too. >> take a good look. this is the fshest this group will look for this entire day. yo getting them a their peak. >> guys, thank you so much. of course shall with the white house isn't the only prize up for grabs. control of the u.s. senate also hanging in the balanc cliffhanger. nbc's hale jacksons here with moron that. >> so this is the election ce where we're watching not just the race for the white house with our political unit seated right over here, but those senate races, too. democrats looking to pick up five seats to try and take back control of the senate, and that is where the real action could be tonight with tight races all over the country. we are looking at some potential downallot drama.

7:31 am
durst became a national name when hbo aired a documentary that aired his life and cast suspicion on him in several crimes. prince harry's office has confirmed that actress meghan markle is his girlfriend. the palace issued a strongly worded statement accusing the media of harassing her. harry says he is worried about her safety and is "deeply disappointed" that he's not been able to protect her. the relationship between prince harry and markle had been the focus of rumors and some speculation for weeks. back to the election. set to vote very soon. both candidates campaigned well past midnight, clinton wrapping things up with an event in raleigh, north carolina, while trump made his final pitch in grand rapids, michigan, the fifth and final stop of the day. in "today's campaign moment," here is a vote that's out of this world. the only american who is not on planet earth has cast his vote.
7:32 am
from the international space station before leaving earth. kimbrough said he was excited about being able to say i voted from space. they don't even make stickers that say that. >> not many people can say that. after such a hard-fought campaign, this election is likely to come down to the votes in several key swing states like florida. this morning, polls are open there and a record number of early voters have already cast their ballots. nbc's gabe gutierrez just outside miami for us. gabe, good morning to you. we have seen a steady stream of voters so far but we don't expect the massive lines here in florida that we saw back from 2012. that's partly because so many florida voters have already voted early or absentee. in fact, half of all eligible voters in this state have already done so. one of the key headlines here is that 15% of those have been hispanic voters. that's much higher than in 2012. we've also seen a latino early voting surge in other states like arizona, nevada and parts of texas. now why is that important? well according to the latest nbc
7:33 am
hillary clinton leads donald trump by 45 percentage points among latinos. so because of that, now there is a mobilization effort today to try to get latino voters to the polls, especially along the i-4 corridor where thousands of puerto ricans have settled after they fled their island's debt crisis. the gop nominee has not carried the vote since george bush got 40% of theat now hillary clinton's campaign hopes it makes the difference in this critical battleground state. matt and savannah. >> gabe, thank you very much. another state to watch, ohio. both campaigns have spent a lot of time and money there. according to many recent polls, it is a statistical dead heat. now trump has led early there in the campaign. we have nbc's ron mott in
7:34 am
hi, ron, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. if donald trump intends to be president of the united states, history holds he has to win the buckeye state here. we said it once, we said it a thousand times, that no republican has reached the without white house winning ohio. this county hamilton just might be the place that swings this election one way or the other. record early voter turnout -- in fact, democrats were handing out tacos to get people out. bigger numbers they've ever seen before in hamilton county. early voting wrapped up yesterday. thmo organized ground game but the clinton campaign is still concerned about hamilton county, whether they will get their voters out to the polls today in force. in fact, president obama won the state in both 2008 and 2012. meantime, donald trump's message is selling especially well in the rural parts of the state. the key here is how well he does in the cincinnati suburbs which is a conservative stronghold and whether his message has energized or turned off that voting bloc. his core support is coming from working class white males without college degrees, many of whom have been in the
7:35 am
been hard hit over the years. that's especially a message that's carrying very well for donald trump in the rustbelt. now the key of course is the turnout. how vigorous will that be among his core supporters. at this precinct, very strong turnout this morning. guys, back to you. >> ron mot thank you for wearing your election day orange. appreciate that. >> how about ron going right from the world series to the election. seamlessly. >> he's versatile! let's get another check of the weather from al. >> let's see what we have for you election day 2016. on the map we started before, we do have a lot of wet weather making its way down through texas, but as you start out up through michigan, we are looking at some wet weather. but nothing too horrible. we're going to see some clouds, especially up in the u.p. of michigan. afternoon showers off and on, kind of breezy. showers will end and clearing continues from east to west -- west to east. now let's head out to california and it is looking pretty darn

8:00 am
. good morning. welcome back to "today." these are pictures just in to our newsroom. hillary clinton expected to emerge, she is casting her vote this morning. no suspense about who she will cast it for. president, bill clinton, as well. they are in chappaqua, new york. >> a quick turnaround for secretary clinton. she arrived back home last night after a campaign swing that took her to pennsylvania and the midwest. she got in i think in the wee hours of the morning. couple of hours of sleep. no rest for the ary, out voting with former president clinton as you can see right there. >> we have nbc's kristen welker on duty. of course, we also expect mr. trump and governor pence to vote a little bit later today as
8:01 am
>> reporte hi the, savannah. good morning. secretary clinton and president clinton just walked in to their voting place here in chappaqua. they were greeted by dozens of supporters who started cheering. we shouted out questions. we asked her how was she feeling this morning. she waved and walked inside. it is a momentous moment for secretary clinton. it caps a more than 18-month fight to become the first female president. it is a fight that lasted early into t wee hours ofhi back in new york and greeted supporters. and that ended a frenzied final sprint on monday. secretary clinton making four stops in three key states. ending her campaign in the key battleground state of north carolina with a midnight rally. but it was the event that she held in philadelphia in which democrats really put on a show of force. of course, that is the city where the nation's democracy is
8:02 am
party's nomination. last night she was joined by president obama, the first lady, her husband, and more than 30,000 people. it is the biggest crowd that she has gathered yet. their message to draw a sharp contrast with donald trump saying that secretary clinton is the most qualified candidate and also saying that she's the candidate who will best unify the country. secretary clinton saying that today is a test her campaign telling me this morning, as she prepares to vote, she is feeling confident, confident about the race that she has run, confident about their ground game. they had more than a million volunteers out over the weekend. they made more than 21 voter to voter contacts. they think that is going to make all of the difference in those critical battleground states and states like michigan and pennsylvania which she hopes to hold on to in order to make history. matt? savannah?
8:03 am
just a note of trivia -- the clinton's casting their ballots as the douglas graflin elementary school in chappaqua where i went to second grade. three of the best years of my life. just kidding. we've got nbc national correspondent peter alexander in new york. donald trump will be voting a little bit later this morning. we'll catch that as well. hi, peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, savannah, goo morning to you. he is going to be voting here only a short distance away from trump to this m soorning certainly a lot of people going to be here w he arrives as well. donald trump this morning again calling in to foxews describing tslection as a beautiful process. he sounded upbeat, saying that he thinks he's going to win a lot of states but says it is still unclear what will happen ultimately. he feels confident about states like michigan and others in the toper midwest that he might need pic off, wle at th e me time dismissing those polls that show him traing as "phony."
8:04 am
isurethtaying up for. >> reporter: in the key battlegrou oforth carolina, hillary clinton making her final campaign pitch in front of a roaringwd overnight. her last event punctuated by energized supporters and a performance by lady gaga and john bon jovi. just hours earlier, clinton greeting a massive crowd outside philadelphia's iependence hall. >> i am not going to let anybody rip away and turn the clock back. >> reporter: the night a showcase in democratic star power. president obama enjoying his highest approval ratings in four years. looking to presve his legacy with a final impassioned plea. >> i'm asking you to work as hard as you can this one last day to elect our next president of the united states of america, hillary clinton! >> reporter: on a crisp fall
8:05 am
springsteen. while trump didn't have the celebrities, he was batting until the bitter end. >> we don't need john bon jovi. we don't need lady gaga. >> reporter: arriving in deep blue michigan overnight to his own fiery crowd. >> if we win michigan, we will win this historic election, and then we truly will be able to do all of the things we want to do. >> reporter: bringing his family along for the storming through fivetates monday alone with ralliesn florida, north carolina, pennsylvania, new hampshire, and michigan. >> if we don't win, this will be the single greatest waste of time, energy and money in my life. >> reporter: his closing argument insisting that he's a uniquely qualified agent of change. >> my only special interest is you. >> reporr: the billionaire slamming clinton over her e-mail
8:06 am
office of the presidency. >> reporter: at times, going off script, stopping to admire a mask of himself. >> nice head of hair, i'll say that. >> reporter: but even in his final hours, trump's primary target -- hillary clinton -- remains unchanged. >> we are finally going to close the history books on the clintons and their lies and schemes and corruption. >> reporter: clinton very early this morning greeting supporters on the tarmac in new york. the end of a historic 19-month campaign, seeking to become the nation again, want to take you back live now to chappaqua, new york where you can see hillary clinton alongside her husband, president bill clinton, emerging after casting her vote today. again trying to become that woman to break the glass ceiling, the first american female president. aides close to hillary clinton tell us that she spent much of yesterday preparing two speeches in case she wins, or loses. as for donald trump, again we noted he'll be voting here.
8:07 am
campaign stop. we've reached out to his campaign as well to try to find out what he plans to say tonight if he's even preparing remarks. so far, no an auto. swer. but of co, what he says will be crucial. can he begin, if he wins, to help unify the country or if he loses, what does he say for so many millions of americans to try to redirect that anger and frustration that they're now feeling with the status quo. >> unifying the country is the order of business for any speech that a candidate gives tonight. peter, thank you very much. investors w what happens today after stocks surged on monday. nbc'sli velshi is at the new york stock exchange. markate rtaint today is the ultimat uncertain day. what do you think is going to haen in the markets today? >> ifou g back nine days when james comey first issued that letter to congress, you saw the market give up about 300 points.
8:08 am
hillary clinton needs to be prosecuted, you saw yesterday the market made up that 300 points and some. so we are at a point where we were before where the market seems to think hillary clinton ng tis goi win the election. now what markets tend to like is a president of one party and a congf a other party. so if we stay where we toda you're probably going to e in uer inutesn open that is lower as we prepare for -- the market prepares for a ary clintonvictory. if through the course of the day this mke gets clues that it migh b you're going t see this market comedown. they a as aious f a dold trump victory as they are for a hillary clinton victory. but, part of that is because markets like certainty. it is not that they like hillary clinton more than donald trump, but they think hillary clinton's going to win. they'll celebrate if hillary clinton wins. >> ali, thank you very much. as nbc news was first to report, the nation's intelligence community is poised and ready in case of any possible election day cyber attacks. sean henry is the chief secury
8:09 am
firm crowd strike and with the fbi formly. good morning. it strikes me that if this is a uniquely difficult job because everybody's concerned about cyber attacks, but who knows what form it could ?ke would it be hackers? would it be state sponsored? would it be messingitvote totals? would it be something on the internet? how do you prepare for something like this? >> we know that the russian government has tried to interfere with the electoral process thus fa they hacked the dnc and the dccc. i don't think we're likely to see a dpt ballot process because our system is so widely dispersed, it would be very, very difficult to do that. i think we are likely to see though some russians or activist groups sponsored by russia or supporting them to actually get some information and to leak it, follow up with social media, to really put a seed of doubt into the actual electoral process. it is about creating confusion and chaos in the democratic process. >> what does the effort to prevent it look like? i mean are there just hundreds
8:10 am
watching kind of odd little factors? >> so the reality of it is, they're not going to actually be able to stop it. what you have is command posts that are set up strategically around the country with the intelligence community, dhs, the fbi. they're looking for unusual or anomalous traffic. they'll be able to respond to it. but they're not going to be able to prevent it at this point. you can't turn off the internet or pull people off the network. >> are you telling people today to treat everything with a grain of salt if you over the internet? >> i think that's very, very important. one thing we've seen historically is these groups actually change data to put out misinformation specifically to undermine the process and create a doubt of the credibility of our election. >> seanhenry, busy day for folks in your line of work. thank you. msnbc chief legal. correspondent ari melber i spending his day monitoring any voter irrularities as parts of nbc's vote watch unit. ari, good morning to you. donald trump has kind of fed this story that there could be a
8:11 am
might be voter fraud. where are the monitors going to be and what specifically are they going to be looking r? >> he h spoken about that, and happy election day to you. our early voting indicators don't show this being a different type of race. but to your question, the first thing that folks look out for is misinformation. already in india, voters received texts with the wrong polling location. there was a concern, oh, is this rigging? is this some effort to tamper? in fact, we found out very hours that it was simply an honest mistake by the local democratic party. the other thing is poll access. will there be tampering or intimidation at the polls. we've already seen some small skirmishes over that. an ohio judge for example ordering allies of donald trump not to do anything that amounts to intimidation. then to the monitoring. basically in about 28 states there are civil rights federal monitors that are out in different places, polling
8:12 am
or double check there isn't any kind of malfeasance going on. and then the other big thing we're always watching for is the counting of the vote itself. that is the idea that whenou go up on an individual basis and you press your candidate, does your machine or doe your ballot show the right candidate? problethere some sort of other and i anyone sees that, that gets called in pretty quickly. that counting of course leads to what everyone cares about tonight -- an accurate count of wh theinner is. >> ari, i think the most impoan point you make here is cycle we see voter confusion. there is a long way from voter confusion to voter fraud. wereciate you making that point. > let us bring in nbc's special correspondent tom brokaw. he's of course been through his fair share of election days in his 50 years here at nbc. we always turn to you on these days for sanity and perspective, tom. good morning. >> i mean i think just on this last point, i do think we need reformation of our political voting process. it is too chaotic across the
8:13 am
and that's no way to run a democracy. but i have been looking back at what we've been through in the last year. then i've been trying to figure out how we go on from here. let's take a look first at what we've been through. >> reporter: two aging baby boomers, both wealthy, and very public figures, for most of their adult lives, met on the great battleground of a presidential mpgn, ahend th divided >> peopleteill never be feated. >> reporter: trump appealing to the disenfranchised, the white working class, gun owners evangelicals. hillar to women, minorities, aditional democrats. theolitical establishment. and at the end,he t cntry is still dply divided, a prescripti for gridck. at a timen therere major issues to be resolved. we're at ithwar, mid
8:14 am
at home. how do we resolve the immigration problem humanely? >> we have to establish borders and we he to build a wall. we have to build a wall. >> reporter: how to fix health care without leang millions with no coverage. and the new economy. how does it serve the old workforce? clinton and trump have their loyal followers, but the majority of american voters went in to this election not wild and that unhappiness will continue to be stirred by the vast universe of social media. clever, ideological, left and right, designed to wound, not to heal. >> it is to replenish -- >> such a nasty woman. >> reporter: after all the turmoil of more than a year, in the end, the two candidates were better at dividing than uniting. >> hillary clinton will be under investigation for a lo, long time.
8:15 am
muslims. including the parents of a muslim-american serviceman killed in iraq. clinton mocked trump supporters as a "basket of plorables." >> i am sick and tired of the negative, dark, divisive, dangerous vision and behavior! >> it has been a marathon of anger and the country is ready for it to be over. but voters on both sides remain anxious about the future. >> who's ready to vote in election! >> reporter: it is the nature of democracy, that there will always be differences. but at the end of this campaign, america remains a sharply divided red state/blue state nation with too few common goals, too many deep differences. >> you know, a pollster says a defining theme of this election has been fear on both sides and across the country. can you not continue to operate under an umbrella of fear. so i think beginning tomorrow
8:16 am
got to dissolve that fear in some fashion by bringing the country together. >> you say that. i have known you for a long time. i would characterize you as an optimistic hopeful person. but when you consider that depending on which side loses tonight, 40 million-plus people are going to be disappointed, and some of them won't even accept the results of the election, how do you go forward? >> i think that's a very, very astute point. then you look at the map, it is that central part of the country and the h. then you have the coastal regions who are going the democratic candidate. how do you bring them together? here is one thought. everyone agrees that we need to do something about public works. our bridges, our roads, the rail lines in this country, that's a non-partisan issue. start with that. you can have a 5-cent gasoline tax right now. puts people to work not only that, when they go to work, they make money and they put it into the treasury. i grew up in a public works era. my dad worked on a big dam right after the war. and it absolutely converted this
8:17 am
from those working class families who got to go to college and have the lives that we have today. so that's one place that you can begin. another place that you can begin in my judgment is public service for the millennials. they want to do it. but they just don't feel attached to the institutions of governance. i'm involved in a public service academy at arizona state. we had 100 sign up last year. 250 this year. they want to be involved in that. moreover, we've got to relieve the pressure on less than 1% o military uniforms and going off to war. there are a lot off jobs that could be filled in non-military roles by a new form of public service. those are two places to begin. party elders, by the way, are already beginning to talk across party lines about how we do these things. they know that the country cannot continue with the schism running down the middle of it. >> compromise can't be a dirty word anymore in our politics. tom, thank you very much.
8:18 am
night as well. results will be rolling in. special decision 2016 prime time coverage gets under way 7:00 p.m. eastern, 4:00 pacific. of course, we'll have all the results starting at 7:00 tomorrow morning right here on "today." coming up, we'll take a turn. tell you what jennifer aniston is revealing in one of her most personal and candid interviews ever. wait until you see the kitchen makeover we pulled off for a pair of very deserving empty nesters. >> announcer: decisio "today" is alexa, order crackers. okay. alexa, ask winebuddy what goes with crackers. i'd recommend a pinot noir. mom, look what i found! oh, thank... alexa, wikipedia poison oak. poison oak is a woody vine that can cause rashes. aren't they pretty?
