Campaign volunteers make final push for votes

St. Johns County volunteers work on election eve


ST. JOHN'S COUNTY, Fla. – Volunteers at the St. Johns County headquarters of the Obama and Romney campaigns are working hard up to the last minute to reach voters before they head to the polls Tuesday.

Most of the last minute preparations for both campaigns involved making telephones calls and going door-to-door reminding people to vote.

Volunteers have come to Florida from across the country. Democratic volunteer Elizabeth McColgan came all the way from Massachusetts to St. Johns County to aid in what she believes is a very important election.

"We now have great-grand children who I don't want to saddle with trillions in debt, and we don't see any light at the end of the tunnel in this administration. Four years will be a disaster," said McColgan.

Republican party volunteer Bob Viet said this is the most important election of his lifetime.

"I've been involved in politics a long time, since J.F.K ran, and I don't think I've had one election that's this important to me and to my family," said Veit.

Democratics and Republicans may differ on their political views but they share one common sentiment, dedication.

"I don't want to wake up on November 7 and feel that I haven't done everything that I could possibly do," said McColgan.

Polling locations are open Election Day in St. Johns and Duval Counties from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
