6:17 am
20% sprinkle chance. clouds and sunshine, pleasant, 82 for a high today. tonight variable clouds, comfy, 66 the overnight low and tomorrow we're back to the upper 70s. the reason i kept it in the upper 70s tomorrow is just more cloud cover around. you can throw a spring nel there but really not a big deal even if it does happen the next seven days, back up to 80 on thursday. notice. we have veteran's day on friday. weather is going it's going to stay nice through the weekend as well. vanessa? >>vanessa: very good. thanks. and some improvements here on the howard frankland bridge. even though we still have that single right lane that's blocked in the southbound direction, the travel times and the tlas have improved. the delays down to about five minutes or so. so take that into account whether you stick with this bridge and just give yourself that extra five minutes or so or take an alternate bridge, it will all depend on where you're

6:34 am
need to know. doors are opening at 7:00 in the morning and they'll be open until 7:00 in the evening. we want to make sure you bring a government issued photo i.d. if you have a sample ballot, you're allowed to take it into the polling room. unlike early voting, you must vote at your assigned precinct. finally, if you're in line by 7:00 in the evening, you will be allowed to vote. that is according to the law. so we're going to be out here throughout the morning. the doors a minutes. we'll be back with another live report for you coming up at 7:00. back to you. >>laura: see you then. thank you. >>russell: so you may want to avoid social media until this thing is over with. blogs and facebook forums exploded with fake headlines yesterday after someone tweeted the cover of "newsweek" with the words, madam president. some say it's proof that the election is rigged and the media is in on it.

the election, incumbent party will win the election. you with me? >>russell: i'm not. >>laura: not at all? >>russell: no. >>laura: only the 2012 and 2004 elections broke that mold. that's more good news for democrats because washington beat the philadelphia eagles and then every four years, spirit halloween puts out a survey of which presidential candidates' masks people dressed up for. this poll has correctly predicted every presidential election for the last two deca of clinton and finally there's a monogram shot in east hampton, new york that based sells on reusable plastic cups. they feature names and logos of the presidential names and tickets. as of this weekend, clinton was leading by 1,500 cups. >>russell: all right. once you get your "i voted" sticker, you can enjoy what

hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin. no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. >>talk to your doctor about brilinta. i'm doing all i can. that includes brilinta. if you can't afford your medication,

6:44 am
pressure and kind of along it you get popup rain showers. a couple of those are going to try to make their way into the state, into the area. it's not going to happen much. what will happen is we'll get cloud cover late tonight and then during the day tomorrow. so today we'll get back to the 80s but i think tomorrow you're looking at high temperatures sneaking into the upper 70s and that's really about it. future cast shows one or two sprinkles along the east coast but start to kind of fizzle out. notice how close tomorrow morning a few of these sprinkles get. so put in a less than 20% chance but mainly a sprinkle and that's going to be about it. but in general, we'll have more cloud cover tomorrow with temperatures in the upper 70s. but really, other than a little batch of clouds tomorrow, our forecast looks great all the way right up into this weekend. so clouds and sunshine, very
