tonight into early tomorrow morning surging further on shore. that's a sign we will see the next few days. the fog is going to move further on shore and the temperatures will be cooling down. today up a bit. warm side in the south bay. 80s, even some 90s along the coastline. that will bring those temperatures down generally in the 70s. east bay though staying on the hot side. mid 90s in many spots there. inside the bay you will see the sea breeze. 76 degrees and mostly sunny in san francisco. 92 in napa. about 88 degrees in santa rosa. next couple days the temperatures cooling back to normal on wednesday and thursday. warming up offshore winds likely with much warmer temperatures next weekend. back to you. >> lawrence, thank you. election day is still a month away, but election season starts today as ballots are mailed out to millions of voters. >> political analyst melissa griffen cane joins us with more. good morning. good morning. this is such an exciting day. yay! for those of you who are permanently getting vote by mail ballots you will be getting
your ballots soon because election departments are sending them out today. california's history of mail ballot voting goes back to 1873 when a number of californians were out of the state fighting the civil war. the governor signed a law allowing citizens to vote by mail. this is from a soldier fighting in virginia on election day. he vote for governor and wrote in emperor north the first. not sure if that's a down grade from emperor. since then several laws have been passed to make it available to everyone. according to the secretary of state, in the june primary 69% of the total votes cast were mail ballot votes. a phenomenal percentage there. >> we were talking about how we like the tradition of going to the polls and to sort of thing. with so many people voting by mail, will we still have election days?
>> it's a great question. at some point election day is deadline for mail ballots day, right? a recent study by uc davis showed that young people and people of color are more likely to vote on election day. so it's unlikely that we would move to an all mail ballot system any time soon. while election day is here to stay, one downside to mail ballots is that they muck up election night. it takes days to count those ballots. so close races can't be called on election night. back in the june primary it took a week before we knew weather betty yee or john perez would be moving forward in the state controllers race. >> there is something nice about getting that sticker. i voted. i love the sticker. i love it. so does this affect candidates and campaigns? >> it certainly does. and they tend to love it, actually, base instead of one election day we have 30. one consultant told me instead of a macy's one-day sale, you have a 30-day sale. can't argue with that. some politicians love it because they have more time to convince
people to vote for their candidate or cause. this is expensive. they have to raise a lot of money early. also, it allows campaigns to change their message midstream. for example, people over 55 vote earlier. so campaigns target them earlier. and then closer to election day they run ads targeting younger voters who tend to wait. now, none of this is any fun unless your mail ballot gets counted. every year thousands do not. for tips to make sure your ballot gets counted check us out at cbs sf.com. >> head to the polls or send your ballots in. >> g head to the post office. >> exactly. time now is 6:52. a new search has been launched for the wreckage of the missing malaysian airlines jet. the powerful new tool that could finally provide some answers. i am ryan takeo live at at&t park. they are getting the park ready. you see the workers making sure
