do not wear buttons or visable clothing supporting a canidate or measure. that's called electioneering - and it's illegal within 100 feet of a polling place. also, there's no photography or videography allowed inside polls. so don't take a selfie. now, this goes without saying, but it's also illegal to pass out flyers or post political signs within 100 feet of a polling place. as of this afternoon, metro has not picked up on any threats of intimidation or planned disturn just the same, they are beefing up their presence tomorrow, and will be ready to respond during the election process. (( 13:09:50 dep. chief charles hank/metro: "without an issue we likely may not even go into the site, we're gonna come by the sites, see how things are going, if things are okay we may pause for a moment and stick around, we may get out of the cars and go inside but it's not intended for us to have an officer posted up at every site- we don't feel it's necessary at this time." ))
clark county. polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. ((paul joncich)) after 7pm, here's the rule, anyone who got in line before 7 will be allowed to cast their vote. also, attorneys for the aclu will repond to any issue of voter intimidation, and make sure every eliglble voter is allowed to vote. now, it's important to note - early voting in clark county went well. patrick walker is here with more on the large number of people who voted early. ((paic that's right.. more than 500 thousand registered voters in clark county have already cast their ballots. and nearly 73-thousand more of those voters were registered as democrats... than as republicans. all told... it was a record night for voter turnout ... and it favored democrats. in fact... polling places stayed open late to accomodate the heavy last-minute turnout. saturday in reno... the day after early voting ended... nevada g-o-p chair michael mcdonald blasted clark county election officials for the decision...
trump also addressed the late surge at the polls.: ((donald trump: it's being reported that certain key democratic polling locations in clark county were kept open for hours and hours beyond closing time to bus and bring democratic voters in. folks, it's a rigged system. it's a rigged system and we're going to beat it. we're going to beat it. )) ((patrick walker)) referencing. friday night at the cardenas market on bonanza and lamb.. the line stretched around the building well after the polls were scheduled to close. it was estimated more than a thousand people in the largely hispanic neighborhood were still in line. it was one of several locations that stayed open late so everyone could vote. they county allowed voting even if people were getting into line after the posted closing time for early vote locations, which clark county says allowed under state law. ((patrick walker)) so now the question is... with so many people voting
overcome the deficit? steve sebelius and i will tackle that question... coming up at 6:30. dave.../// ((dave courvoisier)) we have been hearing those accusations that the elction is "rigged" throughout the campaign. nevada officials say it would be nearly impossible to pull off. doctor brian calfano... a missouri state university professor and political analyst at our affiliate station in southwest missouri took a close look at what why it would be so hard to do: donald trump is telling supporters he's woi rigged to give hillary clinton the win. but the republican nominee and his supporters should take heart that rigging an electionmeaning secret forces conspiring to alter the vote countis almost impossible in a country where the elections are run by 51 separate entities. consider this: the president is elected by voters in all fifty states and washington, dc. each state has its own rules for when and how a person votes. the nation's 3200 county clerks are responsbile for maintaining accurate voter rolls.
signatures in the voters rolls for their individual precincts. meanwhile, secretaries of state in each state must then certify the results. the point is not that efforts to cheat don't happen. its' that for trump's conspiracy theory to hold water, the "riggers" would have to enlist the help of either thousands of ordinary americans who help run state elections (many of whom are republicans), or predict which will be the "swing" states that puts clinton over the electoral college thr playing the odds. add to this that there have been only 31 possible examples of voter fraud out of the more than one billion us ballots cast in the last 14 years, and it seems trump's concern is misplaced. ((dave courvoisier)) that was brian calfano from our affiliate in the ozarks. we are your local election headquarters.. and be sure to tune into us tomorrow on air and online for election day. cbs news will be covering the national races... and we will have updates on the local races every 30 minutes...
