As Election Day inches near, parties are doing all they can to get voters to the polls.
Party officials say it's crucial to reach across party lines and nab those undecided voters before Tuesday.
Democrat and Republican supporters and candidates are working every day to get people out to vote.
"It's really important to take this responsibility. It's your duty to get out and vote so your voice can be heard," says Janet Anderson Republican Candidate for State Senate.
Both parties rallied on Friday and worked tirelessly throughout the day.
"We're working very hard for President Obama. We're expecting a lot of people to come out and vote. We're hoping he'll do exceptionally well," says Erie County Democratic Chair Bill Cole.
"I know the president tried, but his policies haven't worked. We have a chance now to turn the country around and get it back on its feet," says Mike Kelly Republican U.S. Representative for the 3rd District.

The ultimate goal is to reach across party lines and sway undecided voters.
Knocking on thousands of doors, making phone calls and educating the public have become routine for supporters and candidates.
"We would be glad to have anyone who wants to come out to help because we're still doing phone banking and canvassing," says Cole.
"This is the time when our volunteers all come together get really charged and get ready for the final push these last several days," says Republican State Treasurer Candidate Diana Irey Vaughan.
And both parties say it's crunch time as races are close across the board.
"The races we're seeing are a statistical tie at this point and that includes a lot of Republican challengers against Democrat incumbents," says U.S. Representative Glenn Thompson of the 5th District.
