Both campaigns are working hard to get their candidate elected.

But it's not just about getting the vote, but about getting more people to vote.

More people seem to be energized to help.

Nicole Clarke is spending 12 hours on the phone each week.

"I just believe it's crucial to be here as much as possible," Clarke said.

Clarke is volunteering to help elect Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

She's making sure everyone votes and her candidate wins.

"It's important to get people registered so that they can vote. We're pushing for absentee ballots too. The main thing is getting people out there and the word out there," she said.

The Romney campaign in Virginia said they have recruited more than a thousand volunteers since Wednesday.

"Enthusiasm has definitely gone up lately, especially after the debate and we also had the Romney-Ryan rally in our area, which was great," he said.

Alleyn Harned also wants his voice to be heard.

He is knocking on doors to make sure president Obama stays in office for four more years.

The Obama campaign in Virginia said they see more volunteers every day.

"People have actually gotten more involved since the debate and when Romney came to town that actually energized more democrats in the area," he said.

He said people may also be interested in joining because we're close to crunch time.

On Saturday, the campaign launched 15 canvasses in the area.

"We are getting closer, we really are telling voters talking to our neighbors and friends reminding them how close it is. Election day is a month away," he said.

Election day is on Nov. 6 but the deadline to register to vote is on Oct. 15.
