Candidates make final push for votes

Tonight on 9News at 5:  Polls show the presidential race is deadlocked on the eve of the election.  The candidates are making a dash through battleground states to attempt to secure every last vote.

There could be long lines tomorrow at the polls, but anyone in line by 8 p.m. will get to vote, even if that means some people could be voting long after the polls have closed. WAFB's Tyana Williams will have more on why Secretary of State Schedler says that's a good thing tonight on 9News at 6.
