Final Efforts for Votes
Candidates and volunteers are working around the clock with the hope of swaying one independent voter or the other. But independent voters are not the specific targets.
Advertising is not the only tool political candidates use to win this year's election. Members of both the Republican party and the Democratic party say using phone banks, or door to door canvassing on foot, are the best tools as it gives each party the chance to talk to voters in-person.
Volunteers for each party say even though it might be a stressful weekend, canvassing at this time is important for a number of different reasons.
"It really helps because if you have that one-on-one contact, that face-to-face contact, that's really important because if somebody comes to your door and talks to you, you're more likely to remember to vote Tuesday and remember what Jim Talent stands for," explained Paul Sloca of the Missouri Republican party.
"It's just how we get the democrats to the door, and in an off-year election like this, some people, the president's not on the ballot so they don't really mind to go vote so we, we just stress to them the importance of this election year in Missouri," added Nate Kennedy, a Democratic party volunteer.
This weekend was one of the last times party organizers had to guarantee votes on Tuesday.
