VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Volunteers in Lowndes County are making a last minute push to get the community to vote Tuesday.

At democratic headquarters in Valdosta, volunteers are working the phones, urging people to go to the polls and offering rides. They say they'll continue all day, then have a meeting tonight to determine what needs to be done tomorrow.

"We are going to do last minute assignments for tomorrow's volunteer activities. The three big activities tomorrow are calling folks to go to the polls, canvassing the neighborhoods to get them out to the polls and providing rides to the polls for folks that need rides," says Democratic Party Chair Dennis Marks.

The Republican party shut down their headquarters in Valdosta this weekend.

While they aren't making a push Monday, they say they will offer rides to the polls Tuesday as well.
