Political party headquarters buzzing the weekend before the election
COLUMBIA — Election day is approaching and both political party offices are buzzing with activity.
Volunteers were shuffling in and out of the Boone County Democratic Party headquarters, picking up signs and flyers to go door-to-door.
"The whole idea of it is to pass out all 10,000 of these flyers which we are almost done doing. It's amazing that we have been able to get as many volunteers as we have," democratic volunteer Eva Petakovic said.
Volunteers at the Boone County Republican Party headquarters were also busy preparing for election day.
"We've been putting together signs today for the polling places and we've been going door to door talking to people getting people ready to vote on Tuesday," Boone County Republican Central Committee Chair Mike Zweifel said.
Volunteers from both parties said they are trying to make a last minute push to motivate people to get out to the polls and vote on Tuesday.
"Our next effort is to flyer the polls with our amendment stances, which are yes on one and no on the rest. So we'll be out at the polls handing those out to people," Petakovic said.
"We are getting signs together and making phone calls now, but we are also holding a rally at the airport on Monday for statewide candidates," Zweifel said.
On Tuesday, the Boone County Democratic Party is hosting a watch party at The Blue Note at 7 p.m. and the Boone County Republican Party is hosting a watch party at The Holiday Inn Executive Center at 7 p.m.
