STAUNTON-- Both sides are making their final pushes to voters to try to sway any remaining undecided voters, and to make sure people are fired up vote.

This morning, people were walking into the Obama offices in downtown Staunton to offer their help. Whether it be calling or assisting in any way, both sides recognized the importance of volunteers. The campaigns also are making sure people understand the new voter ID law.

Democrats said most people have made up their minds. Today, the most important thing is making sure people will show up to vote as this area is very important to both sides.

"I think it's a very exciting time for Virginia. We know we're a battleground state. What's really exciting is that Staunton and Harrisonburg have been identified as battleground communities. The way Staunton goes may tip the scale one way or the other in this election, and that's why all these people are out here working so furiously," said Staunton City Councilman Bruce Elder, a Democrat.

Republicans are getting their side fired up, as well. This afternoon, former presidential candidate Rick Santorum is joining Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, and Rep. Bob Goodlatte at Harrisonburg's Republican Victory Office off of Neff Ave. for a visit at 3:30 p.m.
