Political volunteers make final push before Election Day
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Both political parties are doing their final rounds of campaigning and canvassing to voters before general Election Day.
Guilford County Republican and Democratic Party headquarters have all hands on deck for the final campaign and canvass before the election.
Volunteers are making phone calls to registered voters reminding them how important their vote is in this election and knocking on voters doors to hand out information on all state and national candidates.
Guilford County Democratic Chairman John Alston said the goal of their office is to get registered democrats to the polls.
“We have roughly 200,000 plus registered democrats in Guilford County. Right now we’ve probably gotten 130,000 out during early voting, so that leaves about 70,000 folks that we are working hard to get to the polls,” Alston.
Executive Director of the Guilford County Republican Party Michael Picarelli said volunteers at the GOP make calls to unaffiliated voters as well as registered Republicans.
“We saw high voting percentages for the early voting but now we need to assure that the unaffiliated voters and some of the low propensityvoters are out in full force,” Picarelli said.
Both parties are also making house calls on Election Day and offering transportation to polling sites for those that need it.
