HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Just one day before the general election, Chief Election Officer Scott Nago appeared on Sunrise. He said that the state has been making sure that polling places are secure. There has been increased scrutiny after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump alleged that the election is rigged.

To fight voter fraud, Nago recommended that voters bring some sort of identification to their polling place. He said it would expedite the whole process. 

As for taking selfies in the polling booth, Nago confirmed that it is legal to do so in the state of Hawaii. However, he said you cannot show the ballot in the picture. Officials just clarified the law earlier this year.
