Hundreds of volunteers are on the phone and on the streets attempting to influence every voter they can.
Tuesday is the mid-term election, and many believe there's a lot at stake. Volunteers are shaping up to have a very important role in who's elected.
Whether canvassing for republicans or for democrats, countless volunteers on both side of the aisle are seizing their last opportunity to be heard, and to get out the vote before Tuesday's election.
Along with making phone calls, volunteers are hitting the street to get some face to face time with potential voters.
"It's really a last minute reminder to get people to come out and vote tomorrow and we are also asking them who they are supporting if they wanna give us that information," said Sandy Ermeling, a volunteer with the Republican Party of Marathon County.
She says she's worried about the direction the country is heading, and that's why she's taking matters into her own hands, and being seen.
"We're really excited about where we stand," said Pat Rasmussen, another republican volunteer.
Republicans have gained momentum over the last months of the campaing, but democrats say they're the party that's better at getting out the vote when it counts.
"When we contact people it increases the percentage that they're gonna vote by 10 to 12 percent depending on the type of contact. Democrats need a little nudge sometimes to get to the polls," said Graeme Zielinski, communications director for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
He says this is the largest get out the vote operation in Wisconsin's mid-term history for the democratic party.
The polls open at 7 a.m.
