afternoon. tomorrow mostly sunny skies. thursday still dry as well. and the 7-day forecast really looking dry valley and statewide as we're not seeing any rain chances. that one not going to bring us any rain either. for now a dry forecast and if you are heading out to the polls that will mean plenty of sunshine today and warming temperatures. we'll warm to 82 by noon before we hit a high today of 89 degrees. breezy through midday. over the next few days that temperature does start to trend down. we're back in the low 80s by the end of the week and into the weekend. >> we'll talk about how close we'll be to records these next couple of days in just minutes. abc15 desert drive times brought to you by century link prism. >> i know you're seeing some slowing up here near the 101 north. really nothing going on there. don't worry about slowing.

are on scene and could a pair of size twelves lead to the killer. >> plus take a look at this.
before you head to the polls. >> and i'm seeing about half a done pooen or so already lining up here at the polls before they open. >> let's get you out with that most accurate forecast we're at 70 degrees now. i think we're going to cool a little bit further into the 60s before we start the warm up. but the warm up will be a little bit quicker and fod's high near 90 degrees plus how strong the winds will be today in minutes. take a look at the roads right now. maybe you're starting to head out early. starting around 91st avenue is where you'll start to see those brake lights . so kind of that typical slow and go and then just past the 17 it's also a little bit slower as you're approaching that tunnel.
let's take a closer look at that coming up. 5:30 on this election day. we've got our crews spanned out all across the valley. >> our entire team going to be on social media all day long. but first here's christopher sign with the breaking news you need to know. i want to talk about what's happening right now. pinelle county sheriff's deputies investigating a possible homicide in maricopa. somebody was shooting at her and maricopa county. outside the town of maricopa excuse me. deputies found a man in a vehicle involved in a shooting. investigators tracked two sets of shoot prints to another home. found two people. deputies took them into custody and matched the shoe prints. no word yet on who the victim may be in this case. let's bring it back home and happening erpy this morning --
street racing. dps got behind them. one decided to stop. that truck was wanted because it was stolen. the second one took off. dps and phoenix police got behind that one and that guy decided to pull off on dunlap and i-17. they took off running from that truck. guess what. the geniuses left behind their wallets inside of the vehicle. and dan and danielle they know who >> 5:32 and check your calendar. it is election day. and boy it's been a long road to get to november 8th. >> unbelieve be l. the polls open in 28 minutes right here in arizona. abc15's katie connor live in central phoenix. >> yeah, you can actually see behind me. they're starting to line up even though the doors won't open until 6:00 this morning. here's what you need to know before you head down to the
registration card and a driver's license. from there, though, again, the polls open at 6:00 a.m. and stay open until 7 k. if you're in line at 7:00 you will still get to vote. find out exactly where that's at. so if you still have an early ballot do not mail it in. just fill it out, sign it, and then take it to the front of the line at your designated polling place. and one last night arizona lets hats, into the polling centers but the one thing you can't do is take a selfie of yourself with your ballot. so just don't do that one. >> important to note. don't take the selfie however use your phone for other things. you want to make sure your vote counts. one of the top things is a way to check your vote status. >> yeah, this morning. super easy. happy to say it was received and counted. in a particularly heated
are calling safety into question. nick ciletti's as a polling silent this morning. >> you can behind me. about a dozen people who have already started to line up. we're less than half an hour away from those polls opening. these people want to make sure they get their place in line. so here's how they're taking action. we know in their county the sheriff's uniform deputies when election officials call them for help. the focus is that 75 foot safety zone. as a journalist i'm not allowed within that perimeter. also voters cannot protest, yell, or chant about any candidate within that zone. >> be proud that you're an american that day and you're going to vote. go home and just wait for the results. >> you're not there to
you're just there to spot criminal activity. >> the arizona earth keepers will be responding to national call to protect against voter fraud. and of course follow on photograph any suspects. but obviously don't go overboard. you don't want to infringe on anyone's right to vote here. coming up here at 6:00 more from the polls and i think we're going to line. >> nick, you mentioned the rules surrounding those polling placers so voter intimidation of course a big concern as well for a lot of people. guns at polling places are i'll legal unless you're a peace officer. so if you're out you happen to see someone armed within 75 feet of the polls you can text guns down to 91190 that is the national voter protection hot line. sticking with that theme i want to talk safety and
donald trump and hillary clinton both candidates are having parties. expecting to hold parties. we'll see what happens after the votes are kountded. the nypd deploying 5,000 officers in the city. bomb sniffing dogs sxhshgs officers in plained clothing. the security measures will be similar to that of new year's eve. >> well the big race on the ballot today. the presidential election. hillary clinton plans to vote near any moment now donald trump will vote today in manhattan. both spent the overnight hours wrapping up their final rallies of this campaign season. can you believe it. on the local level another race we are watching closely. seeking an unprecedented 7th term in office. he's getting all he can handle. not only is it the closest race the sheriff has been involved in
also another familiar name on the ballot. sherry stevens. so let's take a look at the presidential race by the numbers. hillary clinton leading when it comes to fundraising by nearly 2 to 1 margins. how about visits to arizona since winning the nomination? donald trump has been here times and if you live in idaho, alaska, or hawaii. no visits from either candidate. hispanic registration numbers hitting record numbers in several key states including right here in arizona. knocking on tens of thousands of doors. 150,000 latinos registered to vote in this election. the goal now is to actually get them to go vote.
candidates or parties. it's really about your family. >> it's all the latinos go out and vote, they, you know, we can make a change. >> traveling with the group is that big statue of our lade of guadalupe. activists tell us she's surrounded by american flags to signify they all love america. if you are just watching the clock, maybe watching your phone today might be a long day. we've got twelve hours until we see some of those results come in. >> we'll have you covered but leading up to that big reveal the candidates will probably be partying. abc15's justin pazarra is live in downtown phoenix. what can we expect out there? >> we can expect big crowds, danielle. they're telling folks you've got to get here early to downtown phoenix if you want to attend one of these watch parties. kind of an interesting these. these two sides some of their
right next to each other. just steps away. you have the republicans over here at the hyatt. now when obama won back in 2008 so many people showed up to the watch party here in phoenix. so you have to get here early if you want to attend one of these. if you want to come, the results will start coming in around 7:00. that's when those doors are going to swing open. back in 2012, the watch party for prid packed. a lot of people they were crying. they were just moved to tears as they watched these results come in. also there are some street restrictions down here because we have a lot of satellite trucks around here. >> all right justin thanks. our non stop election day coverage continues with a special one hour edition of the now arizona. that's 4:00 this afternoon. a lot to go until then.
afternoon and evening though. and then you get all the results and reactions from candidates right here tomorrow morning on abc15 mornings. >> and dan we do have a new crash right now on the 10. it looks like they have it mainly off on the right-hand side but it's i-10 right near the i-17. i know traffic looking pretty good. but it is completely stopped back to 43rd avenue or so because of that and then those delays really begin some of the lighr it could get worse before it gets better. as far as the 17 goes you're start to go see delays between glendale and thomas. and then really the only other crash that we're talking about this morning is this one in the east valley. 's alma school road on arizona 202. but i'll give you a closer look at the rest of your east valley drive next iris.

going to notice some high clouds moving in especially across central phoenix in the east valley. those clouds building in over the last few hours. but we're not seeing any rain. it's going to be a dry morning but you'll notice those clouds sticking around through the morning before we get clearing skies. and then we'll see mostly sunny conditions through the day today. passing clouds to start the day. temperatures down to the 60s and 70s across much of the if you are heading out to the polls soon know that temperatures will be a bit cool as we start the day. but then we'll start to gradually warm and it will be tywarmer day today than even yesterday. so we're up to 75 by 10:00 a.m. then the low 80s by lunchtime. gusts near 25 miles an hour and today's high 89 degrees. that puts us two degrees high of the record high temperature.
to wait in line at some of the polls. so water might be a good idea to keep handy. we'll drop to 80 degrees as the polls close at 7:00 here this evening. and temperatures will start to trend down over the next few days. we're talking highs in the low 80s by the end of the week. those morning temperatures cooler too as we head into the weekend. and why not kick off election day with free coffee. your cha card from dutch bros coming up on abc15 mornings. you'll have ten chances to win free coffee every weekday only on abc15 mornings. and iris we do have a new crash right now. just seconds ago. they've moved this to the right-hand side. this is i-17 southbound. so you're going to see a little bit of a traffic jam.
