Locals Donate Blood For Victims of Hurricane Sandy

Locals Donate Blood For Victims of Hurricane Sandy

LAS VEGAS -- Southern Nevada joined in the desperate plea from the East Coast for blood drives.

The American Red Cross is in urgent need of blood donations in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Every blood type is needed, especially O negative, which is the universal donor.

Because of the widespread destruction, the Red Cross was forced to cancel about 300 blood drives on the east coast this week.

That's already caused a shortfall of nearly 9,000 blood and platelet donations.

Roxanne Panzer gave blood because she says she had little else to give.

"I cannot donate financially so I wanted to donate what I could," Panzer said.

"I just can't imagine what their going through and I hope that they make it through okay," Panzer added.

Sunday, Palm Mortuary and the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary partnered to offer the drive on West Cheyenne.

Half of Nevada Voters Cast Ballots in Early Voting

On the final day of early voting, voters line up at a polling site near Sahara Avenue and Decatur Boulevard to cast their ballots.

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Half of active Nevada voters have already cast ballots during early voting in advance of Tuesday's general election.

The secretary of state's office said 628,000 people -- or 50 percent of active voters -- have cast ballots, with one day of early voting left. Friday is the last day to vote early. After that, voters will have to go to specified polling locations on Tuesday.

Democrats statewide lead Republicans by about 41,000 in the number of ballots cast, either in person or by mail. Of those who have voted in person, about 44 percent were Democrats, compared with 36 percent registered as Republican.

But Republicans have outpaced Democrats in absentee voting by about a 4 percentage point margin.

Democrats hold a 90,000 voter registration advantage statewide.

President Obama Rallies Crowd in North Las Vegas

President Obama arrives in Las Vegas Nov. 1, 2012.

LAS VEGAS -- President Obama arrived at McCarran International Airport Thursday afternoon for a campaign stop in Southern Nevada just five days before the votes are counted in Campaign 2012.

Once on the ground, the President headed to a rally at the Cheyenne Sports Complex near the College of Southern Nevada's Cheyenne campus. There he was joined by actress Eva Longoria and others. It's estimated about 4,500 people showed up to hear Obama speak.

"We made real progress in the past four years, but Nevada, you know our work is not done," Obama said.

Obama returned to the campaign trail Thursday after suspending events due to the massive storm that devastated the East Coast earlier in the week. The President is on a three-state swing of battleground states.
