In less than 24 hours, 4-Staters head to the polls to make their voices heard. Local Democrat and Republican volunteers have been working tirelessly to win your vote for their party, and that's what they're up to on the eve of the midterms. Both Crawford County Kansas Democrats and Jasper County Missouri Republicans spent the day knocking on doors, handing out literature, and encouraging 4-Staters to vote.
"We've got a team of over 20 student volunteers that have been out knocking on doors for the last 3 to 4 days. We got them out in spite of the rain this morning. They were eager to go," said Jimmy Morris, chair of the Jasper County Republicans.
"We have had an extremely good turn out of volunteers," said Lynn Grant, chair of the Crawford County Democrats.
Both parties also had a rallying of the troops at their local headquarters, with House candidate Paul Davis rallying the Crawford County Democrats and Senator Roy Blunt pumping up the Jasper County Republicans.
So after all the hard work these volunteers have put in, how do they feel about their chances?
"I'm optimistic. Cautiously perhaps. But Crawford County has normally a democratic county. For years we have been a stronghold in Southeast Kansas for the democrats. And we have so many good people working for us, as well as good candidates," said Grant.
"Here in Southwest Missouri, we're very confident of all of our local candidates crossing the ballot with substantial margins. The big question here is obviously the U.S. Senate race between Josh Hawley and Claire McCaskill. That's watched nationwide and President Trump is making his last stop before election day here in Missouri. So that tells you how important this race is and how closely it's being watched," said Morris.
