Local chapters of the Republican and Democratic parties are in full gear, encouraging people to get out and vote.

At the Warren County Republican headquarters, it was a busy day. Volunteers spent hours on the phone promoting their candidates.

With less than 72 hours to go before Election Day, Warren County Judge Executive Mike Buchanon says things are looking up for Republicans.

"Everything's upbeat here today and in recent weeks. Things seem to be turning for the better in Warren County and around the state,” Buchanon said.

Local Republican John Whitaker believes volunteer efforts are worthwhile.

"I think it's well worth giving up a Saturday morning when you take into consideration all the important issues that are facing Kentucky right now,” Whitaker offered.

Just a few blocks away at Democratic headquarters, local party leaders are working for a victorious Tuesday.

"Some of the candidates for these state constitutional offices have a tighter race, frankly, on our ticket, than some of the other ones. We're optimistic, though, that we can deliver a victory, a sweeping victory, with all those offices," said Shannon Morgan, the chair of the Warren County Democrats.

Bonnie Gibson, president of the local Democratic Women's Club, states that Democrats are not sitting back and relaxing.

"We feel that we are going to win Tuesday, but we know too that you can't take that for granted, that you have to keep working up until the very last minute," Gibson said.

If there is one thing people from both camps agree on, it's that getting people to vote takes teamwork.

"It's a boost-builder, you know, to be calling together and sharing the information you're getting when you are talking to people," Gibson added.

"It makes all of us more confident when we're getting out in the community campaigning for our representatives or campaigning for just general issues within the community," Whitaker said.

Judge Buchanon says there are around 55,000 registered voters in Warren County. If you're not sure about where to vote, you can contact your County Clerks Office to find out.
