Vote to ban smoking passes

Good morning! It's Christine Nelson sending you this email as you wake up this morning. Today is Wednesday, October 22. Here is a first look at the stories making headlines right now on WBTV News This Morning. Remember, we're live on the air now until 9 a.m. on WBTV and Bounce TV.

8-1. That is the final vote that officially bans smoking on Mecklenburg County-owned properties and in county vehicles. With an overwhelming majority saying "yes" to the ban, some commissioners still had their reservations about what they were passing. WBTV's Mark Davenport is on your side with details on when ban goes into effect.

7-1. That is the score from game one of last night's World Series. Who was on the winning side? Was it Kansas City maintaining their undefeated post-season run? Or would San Francisco pull out all the stops? Watch our highlights to see.

CAMPAIGN 2014: We told you earlier this week Hillary Clinton would be in North Carolina campaigning for incumbent U.S. Senator Kay Hagan. A heavy hitter on the Republican side will be in Union County stumping for Thom Tillis today. And stick around in our 6:30 half hour we'll show you highlights from the South Carolina gubernatorial debate.

We're looking into one local agency's use of police body cameras and how effective it would be for police departments in our area.

Plus... people making money off the Ebola crisis. It's happening on a computer near you. We'll explain.

Cold start to the morning again today. We'll break down the forecast with updates every 7 minutes.

See you on air!
