through about 3:00. then once the rain starts this evening, we will begin to cool down. i'll go 63 at 5:00. your rain forecast through time, so this morning up through midday, minimal issues in our forecast. but i think as we start to get closer to 5:00, even 4:00 that rain chance will be climbing, so again, if you're voting later please take an your weekend forecast at 6:17. laura. >> laura: first a look at the roads now before we head to the news and talk more about your election coverage. look at this, though, this morning. nothing to complain about at 6:02. really, really smooth travels and no accidents out there. if you try to get on the roads and head to the polls, first thing is first this morning. you get the benefit of the new morning no blues travels. as you come from the west side of akron, 55 miles per hour
towards the kenmore leg, no slowdowned are reported here, and no issues with the central interchange. the spots are actually open, because we have closures in place. look at strongsville to cleveland, 19 minutes, 17 minutes inbound and 37 minutes straight up 77 from akron. we've got some closures near the innerbelt and will talk about that coming up at 6:19. guys. >> tia: election day is finally here, and in the next next president of the united states is. >> brian: candidates will wait anxiously both in new york city as voters make their decisions today. reed binion covers our election this morning. >> reporter: even as the nominees themselves pushed forward with one final round of stumping, clin to and trump

motor vehicles. a u.s. military i.d. with voter's name and photo. a government i.d. with voter's name, current address and a photo. or a utility bill, cell phone bill, bank statement, pay stub or a government document. that's one of those pieces. security will be a top priority today. the board of elections director pat mcdonald says he's working with the sheriff's department, homeland security and the fbi. they're even bringing in a special rese during the rnc. >> the county impact team is basically a unit put together to be deployed out into the field, in this case the county, to handle any unusual circumstance or any crowds or any problems that we might have. >> sia: now, coming up in the next half hour, i will tell you the suggested best times to come and vote if you don't want to wait in any long lines.
nyorkor, "cleveland 19 news." >> brian: aside from the presidential election, the next top tier political race on your ballots today is the ohio senate. incumbent republican rob portman is up against former ohio governor democrat ted strickland. in the last week there have been five polls. in those portman's lead ranges from 13 points to 21 points over strickland. the red line on this graph shows support for portman, while the blue line shows support for strickland. we have a link on cleveland19.com that you will find other local issues on your election ballot. >> tia: this morning we highlight just some of them. denise zarrella is live at the pleasant valley elementary school where parma voters will cast ballots this morning. denise, anybody in line yet to cast those ballots? >> denise: it's funny you should say that. we've had people already show up here that wanted to vote. we had to tell them, hey, the
the woman that runs this location. they have been furiously returning around to get it set up. one of the big things is for the first time ever she has an observer here. she says there are members of the national media that are already here. we were here. i guess they've never had media attention at this particular poll location. again, like i said, we've already had voters show up and say, can i vote right now? we have to tellm open at 6:30, and they tell me they will be ready. nicki. >> reporter: in lakewood the fight to save the hospital goes on. they will decide whether to seal the deal. a vote against it does not re-open the hospital. voting for it allows the facility to be used as a health clinic. in cleveland another hot topic, voters there decide whether to raise the income tax by half a percent from 2% to 2.5% to raise
the mayor has warned a no vote would hurt the city. >> a failure to have the half a percent income tax increase will result in 40-something million dollar deficit next year that will result in layoffs in safety, layoffs in other areas of city services, which will mean reduction of service and in some cases services. >> denise: all right. obviously, the results of this election will hit many of our viewers square in the wallet. in cuyahoga county alone, ten school districts have a levy on the ballot and six communities ask to raise taxes to raise money for operating costs. we will bring you live reports through this polling location throughout the morning.
>> tia: we're following all the local issues and races today. as we get answers and results, you can get them too on the cleveland 19 mobile news app. all the election coverage is available on the phone if you download or app for free. the second we get results in, key issues or races, you can bet on getting a push alert sent to your mobile device. you can also watch our live stream continuing coverage on the "cleveland 19 news" app. we will broadcast them on air at 7:00 station cle43. also tune in for election night coverage on "cleveland 19 news at 11:00." ten minutes after 6:00 on election day. free doughnuts and discounted admission to the rock 'n roll hall of fame. we get answers about the perks you can cash in on just by voting today. >> tia: this is scary. also ahead we get answers about a massive sinkhole that swallowed a five-lane road right in the middle of rush hour. sam. >> samantha: my goodness.
hopefully your morning commute is smoother than that, right? 45 in akron this morning. clear skies and we cloud up soon. if you vote later today, not in the morning but have to wait a little while, you might run into rain. we'll sttalk about it after the break. >> nichole: at the alert desk breaking developments out of london of a surprising announcement from prince harry this morning. in germany several are arrested

and we'll top out in the low 60s later today. for tonight, temperatures in the 50s with scattered rainshowers continuing. notice how that rain chance does remain pretty high all throughout the night. i think it will drop off just a little bit by early tomorrow morning, but there may be still be a little light rain in the viewing area, even through 9:00 tomorrow morning. by tomorrow afternoon we should be dry, but there is a big difference between today and tomorrow. look at your seven-day. i have it right up on your tv screen. it will be very cold tomorrow. upper 40s for high temperatures. brief warm-up thursday, friday features cooler weather and late-day rain. a little bit of snow mixing in at night, but no problems there. laura, the weekend does look dry. >> laura: our wazers on the road this morning talk about a couple problem spots. i just have a view on this map. if i move to the side here, along the turnpike we have lots of construction spots.
driving near the columbia station area talking about the construction you definitely see out that way. i wanted to move closer to the airport and over on 480. the eastbound lanes may have a blockage right now right over near the airport here. so it's going to be near that brook park road area, and there's an accident affecting the eastbound lanes of traffic right now. the drive is still green, so no worries there. let's switch to the other maps. we have some construction going under the innerbelt bridge. this went on yesterday. we g again tomorrow. it's closed tomorrow on canal under the bridge from 9:00 in the morning until 3:00 in the afternoon. drive times still look good. no big problems here. we're moving along fine. akron to cleveland, we take your drive coming up at 6:33. guys. >> tia: all right. time is 6:20. they don't call this the lucky lottery store for nothing. how about this? that shell station in brook park has done it again. another instant millionaire. >> brian: it's unbelievable.

now, and that is one of the first people standing over there to cast his ballot. he is doing so right here at the fairfax rec center, but before you come over here, there's a few things that you need to know. here's what you need to bring with you if you're coming to cast your ballot today. just one of these pieces, a driver's license or state i.d. card with voter's name and photo issued by the ohio bureau of motor vehicles. a u.s. military i.d. with voter's name and photo, a government i.d. with voter name and current address and photo. a utility bill, cell phone bill or government document. again, one of those pieces. cuyahoga county predicts about 357,000 people vote tomorrow. excuse me. vote today. through the day they'll work with rovers and observers who have been trained to watch election proceedings and report on any issues.
place and they're uncomfortable in any way, they need to report that to a poll worker. we will be contacted. we also have rovers that are part of our staff. they're available to go to anywhere where there might beish is they need to look into. >> sia: officials tell us there's multiple officers on every precinct and on top of that there's 6,000 election workers. you can see them this room. they're all working together to make sure that everyone stays safe and you have the information you need to be able to vote. now, they're recommending if you don't want to wait in line for you to go during the day before or after work. those are some of the heaviest times and that's when you expect the longest lines. so try to go at an off-time if you don't want to wait. for now i'm getting answers here at fairfax rec center on
>> brian: thanks. of course, here on the ohio ballot everyone gets to vote in the senate race between incumbent rob portman and the democrat ted strickland. >> brian: locally, there are several school levies to update you on. good morning, denise. >> denise: we're in parma at pleasant valley elementary school where aside from the presidential election, they have a big school levy on the ballot here. we already have long lines, reasonably long lines of voters at 6:30. yes, the parma school levy is on the ballot here. they're in a state of fiscal caution here. if it doesn't pass, it's unclear how to deal with a $50 million deficit and the levy not passing. there are other schools in the viewing area where they ask voters for more money so they can run the schools. in the parma school district they have a $15 million deficit
le levy passes they need to figure out how to make up for the budget shortfall. in cleveland school leaders try to convince voters to renew a levy there. if issue 108 doesn't pass the district will have to cut $65 million from the budget. fairview park schools pushing for a levy to make renovations to schools. pafrnts have said their schools are in need of plumbing, electrical and structural and some schools in some other counties asking for levies to pass, the ravenna city schools and the norton city schools and stow schools as well. here in parma we have talked to voters here. many support the schools, but some have told us off-camera they're not sure they'll vote with the levies because they're frustrated and disappointed over the $15 million shortfall that just came up that was uncovered that was discovered. they said they're not sure that they want to pass the levy and
light of that. so it will be interesting to see what happens here in particular. we're asking questions and getting answers here in parma. denise zarrella, cleveland 19. >> brian: d, thanks so much. stay with "cleveland 19 news" for continuing coverage of campaign 2016 right through the election tonight. we'll be live on cle43 from 7:00 to 11:00. we'll be streaming online and on our mobile app. >> tia: time is 6:48. desperate search is underway for a mother of two who disappeared while jogging. >> brian: there's a smeth on your smartphone that could set you up to get inappropriate pictures. uh-oh. sam. >> samantha: we don't want that to happen. 6:40 on this tuesday morning. this is a live picture out at cedar point. this is an absolutely beautiful sunrise. there is no lofi or other filters. what are the other ones, tia? xx pro. there's no filter on this, okay?
>> nichole: time is 6:44. i'm nichole vrsansky at the alert desk. following several developing stories right now. in south carolina investigators will return to the property of accused serial killer todd kohlhepp this morning, although the coroner has said he does not think there are any more bodies to discover at this point. a third body was discovered on the 45-year-old's property yesterday. kohlhepp is now linked to the deaths of seven kidnapping of a woman found chained inside of a storage container. the search resumes today for a missing mom in california who disappeared last week after going on a run. sheri's husband says he came home and her car was not in the driveway and their kids had still not been picked up from day care. authorities are now investigating, but they say they do not have enough evidence at this point to point toe an abduction. a quick update for you on the oklahoma earthquake.
in cushing sustained substantial damage. cracks in buildings, fallen bricks and facades. certain areas are still resfrikted this morning. no major injuries reported and no damage has been reported at cushing's major oil storage hub. brian. >> brian: thanks, nicki. you might see this on facebook this morning. this is quite a reminder now to parents when it comes to letting your kids use your phone. jessica peterson's 2-year-old daughter was wch on the iphone when all of a sudden a picture of a naked man popped up on the screen. it was airdropped, which is a feature on apple that allows people to share instantly. >> something that really -- you don't want your children to see that. so i felt vulnerable. >> brian: how you can prepare airdrops from coming on your phone. when you swipe up from your home screen, you see this. then go to airdrop and either
the feature at all or just contacts only. if you have it set on everyone, what happened to this family could happen to you. >> tia: for the first time in history, cover girl is featuring a woman mared a hijab. she's wearing the traditional muslim women's head covering in an ad campaign for a line of mascara. in a statement released by cover girl, she says she never thought she'd see muslim women represented on such a large scale. well, in the run up te election, you may have heard a lot of people joking about moving to canada, and it turns out more americans really are looking for jobs there. job search engine monster worldwide says the number of americans looking for work there this year rose nearly 60% compared with all of last year. it's very interesting, because market watch put out this withhold article about if you think moving there, it's not that easy. six things you need to know. for example to give you a few. immigration can be difficult and expensive.
pretty much anywhere. you may still have to pay u.s. taxes, so you may get to that point. first you have to have a job there. you may get to the point and still pay taxes. it's not that easy. not really. >> samantha: it's too cold. i want to stay here. >> tia: canada is a great place. >> samantha: it's lovely. there's tim hortons there. >> tia: no trader joe's, by the way. >> brian: there's tim ho there's one right around here somewhere. >> samantha: it's like in mansfield. erie. >> brian: there's one in erie, edinburgh, pennsylvania. >> samantha: i need one in downtown cleveland. >> tia: open one up. >> samantha: do they franchise? our producer is probably like, please stop talking. it is 6:00 in the morning. he gave me a big wrap. time now is 6:47. we don't want to move to canada,
in cleveland where it is beautiful and it's 51. there's no target in canada. i'm definitely not going there then, because target is everything, right? you got to have your target. we have a south-southwest wind this morning, and that means we're going to warm up today. so that is wonderful news for this election day. as we look live at satellite and radar imagery, you can see we're dry. i have some cloud coverov higher level clouds so they don't produce rain. the rain is back towards southern lake michigan, chicago, places way far off to the west. it's associated with a cold front. that front will be dropping in later today. it's going to do two things for us. the first is cool us down tomorrow. the second thing is going to bring us a little election day rain, but not anytime soon. the next several hours you are totally fine.
won't have to deal with any rain. just partly to mostly sunny skies. a stray shower could pop up as soon as midday, but for most of us it's 4:00 on that we see those rainshowers moving in. mid-60s this afternoon, and that will happen at about 3:00. so that will be the warmest part of the day before we drop back into the 50s later tonight. mid-50s at 9:00 in november is not bad. we'll take it. we have rainshowers night. dinner plans or a meeting at school you have to get to tonight, be prepared to deal with some rain on the roads. there may be a little lynner rain early tomorrow morning, but by mid-morning we should be fine. we'll be done with any rain, and then it just gets cold. here's your full seven-day planning forecast. we go from 65 today to 48 tomorrow. that will be really cold compared to what we've had to enjoy lately.
none of that tomorrow. little warmer on thursday, and then friday our next system moves in. we'll have a little rain late in the day, but some snowflakes may actually mix in friday night. they will not cause any troubles, and i think we'll be dry by the weekend. laura, chilly this weekend. >> laura: all right. bundle up for that and put on scarfs. headed out the door and 77 and starting to slow down a little bit. i know this is the headache everybody is dealing with. if you're coming up 77 and coming from the southern suburbs, maybe let your friends know coming from the west side suburbs there are now five lanes across the innerbelt bridge. if we can get more people over to the innerbelt bridge, hopefully that will alleviate some traffic that packs up along 77. akron is moving very, very well. no big issues here. that's the kenmore leg and typical slowdown there. rta this weekend, the green line
do track work for the weekend. so saturday and sunday, and an accident on i-480 eastbound near the airport still all green in the area and still all green on our drive times from strongsville, north olmstead, mentor and akron. >> tia: we'll have a new president of the united states by the end of the day. election day is here. you see it right there. people are at the polling places. the lines are growing like here at fairfax recreation center right in cleveland. >> brian: we'll get you caught up on all of the electio d information you need to know before you go. that's next.
