Get Out the Vote encourages neighbors to cast their ballot

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Volunteers are braving the elements Tuesday evening to get people to the polls before they close. 

Dozens of people gathered at a Madison home for a Get Out the Vote canvassing event. 

Senator Tammy Baldwin was there to kick it off. 

Volunteers will be going door to door until the polls close.

They're motivating people who haven't voted to head over to their local polling place and make their vote count. 

"This is people's opportunities to speak, to exercise their rights and we can really see progress for Wisconsin if people participate," said Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI).  

Baldwin spoke to the volunteers about the importance of their volunteer work and how every vote counts. 

"People should get out and vote up until 8 o'clock," said a Get Out the Vote volunteer, Eric Sundquist. "Stay in line. If you're in line at 8, it probably won't be a very long line. Get out and vote, you can register at the polls."

Across the state today, community teams held similar events to encourage their neighbors to get out and vote.
