i'm allison kropff. and i'm ian reitz. it's finally here. today is the day we decide who will lead our country for the next four years. but with a few ballot problems in some parts of the state, some are concerned about making sure their vote counts. 10news reporter emerald morrow is live in downtown st. pete. emerald, political experts say there shouldn't be any huge problems. but some of the groups worried most about issues could be the groups that sway the election. yes, the minority vote is huge in florida, the hispanic population could be the group that sways the election one way or the other in the state. black voters have some sway, too...but lower turnout in that group could lessen its impact. but while voters in these groups have the potential to have a huge impact on which way florida goes, they are the voters more likely to experience problems at the polls such as longer lines and waiting times.
center often times, polls that serve mostly black and hispanic voters don't have the resources to keep the lines moving quickly...in some cases, that can discourage voters. our 10news political expert says lower voter turnout in the black community---whethe r it's because of long lines, less enthusiasm, or whatever the case might be---it could hurt democrats, who historically benefit from this voting block. for those worried about how long lines or other hiccups in the voters...experts say while everything's not perfect, the system still works. and coming up at 6:30, we'll take a look at what officials are doing to protect your vote here in florida. back to you after hitting a number of states monday...hillary clinton and donald trump made their final pitches overnight to voters in north carolina and michigan. the justice department is deploying hundreds of people in 28
the department's civil rights division and will help enforce federal voting rights laws. trump has repeatedly urged his supporters to monitor the polls.. claiming the election may be rigged. as one of the most divisive races comes to a close tonight, some cities are beefing up security at campaign events and polling places. 10news reporter sarah hollenbeck is live at a voting center in davis islands. sarah, you checked with local polling places. are they stepping up security? no, they tell us staffing extra no, they tell us staffing extra security here would be unneccesary because they expect people to treat eachother respectfully. our local polls always have some security.and that's no different this year. but-- that isn't the case for other cities, like new york. both hillary clinton and donald trump will be in new york city tonight. and the new york
department is ready. security will be tight across the city...there are already armed guards stationed outside trump tower and many downtown polling places. new york city mayor bill de blasio says 5,000 police officers will be assigned to secure midtown manhattan. at the same time, the department of homeland security has partnered with the cia and fbi to prevent a cyberattack on election day. here's what i'm digging into at 6--- those cyber attacks are a huge concern for today's election. i'll let you know investigators are really concerned about going into an extremely crucial day. ian.... there's a new viral ad from a pet food company -- that shows how man's best friend helps to build a bridge between the bitter political divide. check it out: the three minute ad released by pedigree features a social experiment taking a "lost" golden retriever to political rallies, all while wearing the opponents t- shirt. after a cold reception by supporters on both sides, eventually

cindy said she unfriended "one person, who decided to get personal. otherwise, i don't care what their politics are. just getting tired of all the propaganda." patricia wrote "no. i've never unfriended anyone over politics, but i have had to unfollow them if their posts were inappropriate. and there was a lot of that in this election cycle." and jill says "unfollowed because their political crap was clogging up my news feed....enough is enough, i don't 100+ political posts everyday!" so it seems like the common thread is that people generally won't unfollow unless posts are over the top or they get too personal. take a look at
