Eau Claire (WQOW) - Even though
we've set our clocks back, work on the campaign trail is moving forward. Many
hours of work are put in by volunteers to help get voters to the polls. We
caught up with some of the people who are helping both democrats and
republicans get out the vote.
"Just that one
person getting out there can make a difference," said volunteer Ann Dohm.
Volunteers are working harder than
ever to make sure people head to the voting booths on Tuesday.
"I'm putting in
more time now, I took off of work, I just think it's so important that we get
people to the polls to vote. And it's chaotic, it's crazy. We have people
coming and going all the time. Just come down, and they'll put you to work,"
For democrats, Sunday saw volunteers
greeted by special guests to Eau Claire.
Cast members from the shows "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "Happy Endings"
were on hand to show their support.
is a really important state, and specifically Eau Claire with all the young people here.
You want to make sure that they're out and voting, and that's the most
important thing. Especially for the President to be re-elected, I feel like
youth is important," said Adam Pally of ABC's show "Happy Endings"
At the Republican Victory
Center in Altoona, UW-Eau Claire student volunteers
were busy making phone calls to potential voters.
"There's so many
individuals in our state, we want to make sure that we make contact with
each and every one of them. Every phone call, every door knock, it just makes
that much of a difference. So we want to make sure we can get out and reach as
many voters as possible," volunteer Beth Sorensen said.
While they won't get paid for their
work, students realize the experience has its own value.
"It's a very
productive way to be spending my time. I could be out there going to basketball
games, doing other things. However, this is a very beneficial way to be
spending my time," said Sorenson.
