Volunteers Make Final Push as Election Day Approaches

HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Many analysts have predicted a lower turnout than last year's presidential election, but local volunteers said a lot is at stake.

Monday is the final push and volunteers in Harrisonburg are spending the day making phone calls to remind people to vote. They are also planning on knocking on doors throughout the day.

At the Republican Field Office on Neff Avenue, a few volunteers were working hard Monday morning; excited after Ken Cuccinelli's visit to SHD Sunday.

They hope that visit will inspire people to head to the polls.

"This is an election that is going to effect everyone of us. Some people only vote in presidential elections, but I don't think they realize that these elections probably mean more for them," said Marlissa Amole, a Republican volunteer.

The democrats said they are doing similar things.

Richard Baugh, a Democrat Harrisonburg City Councilman, as well as a kind of a surrogate in this area for McAuliffe's campaign, said with the state election, each vote is important.

The Democrats are trying to identify their likely voters Monday and get them to the polls.
