5:07 pm

5:08 pm
fraud. >> reporter: voters believe that there is nothing to worry about. >> that is what holds up the democracy, the right to vote. there's a lot of people that work hard to make sure that's the case. >> the checks and balances that they have in the county and the state, i don't think that there will be much fraud at all. >> the question is are they right? >> voter fraud is is a very small problem in the united states. >> reporter: according to the law professor, they are right. she says when voter fraud does happen that it is usually not intentional. >> and often what happens is not that somebody was trying to cheat and vote using the name of the dead person, but just that there was some -- discrepancy. >> reporter: she adds there is is a high rate of detecting discrepancy. think again if anyone is trying to cheat the system. >> it seems more like intimidation. i hope people go out and vote
5:09 pm
and don't feel like they are going to be imposed upon and exercising their rights as citizens. >> reporter: there is also a concern that these claims of voter fraud will encourage voter intimidation at the polls. not only is it against the law, but the registrar voter says that extra staff will be looking out for that too. in the newsroom kpix 5. will is finally a new way for bicyclists to get to treasure island. coming up, the new bay bridge bike path. plus, the troubles that it has apparently caused already. plus, a dramatic boat rescue off the coast of florida. how the family was able to make it out alive. ,,,,,,,,,,,,

caltrans fares. completing the path took 20 years of planning costing untold millions of dollars. it was suppose to open at noon, but caltrans said what the heck and unlocked the gates 30 minutes early. >> we figured when it is ready to open, open. don't make people wait. >> reporter: the cyclists that fought so hard to include the path didn't seem to mind the lack of ceremony. >> it was like christmas morning. you want to open the presents to see what's there and start playing with it, kind of that feeling. >> reporter: the four and a half mile path offers panoramic views of the bay and the port of oakland and allows those to reach treasure island where the owners eagerly wait more visitors in spandex. >> we're excited that we'll have more of a variety of food and that we'll be bigger. i'm looking forward to it. i think it'll be great. >> reporter: but customer bob welch isn't sure how those on foot are suppose to get here. the road where the path ends is one long blind curve without a shoulder to walk on.
5:13 pm
>> so you have to stay on the road and it is small and thin and i would think that it would be kind of dangerous to walk down here. >> reporter: the city is offering a shuttle bus from the path to treasure island. but even though it's a two- minute ride the bus only comes half hour. caltrans says there's a lot of work yet to be done before the roads could handle thousands of people riding or walking here. perhaps that's why today's opening was such a low-key affair. on the bay bridge john ramos kpix 5. >> caltrans says the next step is to figure out how to add a bike and walking path on the west side of the bridge completing the path into san francisco. the coast guard rescued four people including an 8-year- old girl from a capsized boat. the boaters were clinging to the hull as a helicopter arrived saturday morning. the chopper crew brought them back to land. nobody was hurt. still ahead an olympic swimmer is paying tribute to one fan. how he avoided a cancer scare

thanking one of his fans, for pointing out a suspicious looking mole. australi turns out not all life guards are by the pool. one is pointing out the suspicious mall. -- suspicious mole. shout out to the person who e- mailed the swim team doctor and told me to get my mole checked out. good call, very good call. apparently the fan spotted the irregular mole on tv and decided to say something. no word on whether or not that mole was malignant. >> all right, as you can see in the view you're about to see. high clouds are painting the shoreline at this hour. those high clouds overhead, an indicator to the fact that things will begin to change come monday. we've got a chance of rain
5:18 pm
coming into the north bay. but still it is a very nice day as we head towards the sunset on this sunday evening. right now everybody is in the 60s. not a bad decade to be in. low pressure is off the pacific northwest and the rain associated with that will slowly spread south. i mean slowly. tomorrow first in redding and then finally into the north baby the afternoon, mid afternoon much of the bay area won't see a thing on monday except for increasing clouds. but let's freeze the future cast at 4:00 in the afternoon. you can see the band of rain extending over into the north bay. sonoma and finally into brandt. but it will take a while. even when it does on 7:00 tuesday morning the front will begin to fall apart. so anything south of the golden gate bridge, anything south of the strait are not going to get much on monday or tuesday. then watch what will happen. it'll retreat back up into sonoma and completely evaporate the way it goes. wednesday looks like a mostly sunny day, but then clouds will increase on wednesday and
5:19 pm
advance with another more powerful system coming in on thursday. so monday and tuesday look wet, but it's mostly a north bay thing. winds will pick up with this. brighter colors are indicating gusts are beginning to approach 15 to 25 miles an hour. and certainly windier. that's just going along with a front coming through. so the north bay rain will develop later on monday. rain and gusty winds, they do spread south, but to a certain extend with the showers, lingering showers on tuesday. before you get a break on wednesday more rain on thursday. overnight tonight we'll be looking at readings in the mid- 50s with 57 degrees in san francisco. 60 degrees at fremont. livermore at 58 degrees. san jose 59. here is how it looks if you're heading out of california. 68 degrees in redding with mostly cloudy skies. rain for you tomorrow. then back in the bay area, 66 in the city. 70 at concord and 71 in san jose and 69 degrees in oakland. down in the south bay tomorrow we'll be looking for readings to be near 70 degrees and increasing high clouds.
5:20 pm
you know for the most part it will be dry for the next two days in the south bay. but it will be cloudy. over in the east bay impossible to say. we will get down to the certain extent that you won't get much. again by tuesday morning, tomorrow is just a cloudy day. north bay, now we have something to talk about. by mid-afternoon we will get some rain. and then for lake port and clearlake some pretty good rain. so it depends on where you are. the further north a bigger system will be coming in on thursday after a sunny day on wednesday. then maybe some more next sunday. so on again, off again, but especially on thursday that looks to get particularly wet. the opposite of all wet here he is. >> it is a gold rush for opposing football teams. the latest numbers from levi stadium. the raiders kick off in the sunshine state. can they remain undefeated on the road? kickoff is next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
