WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Partisans on both sides of the aisle are making a late push to get their voters to the polls on Election Day.

At Webster University, students are doing what they can to get other students to vote. The university will be providing shuttles to polling places Tuesday.

“Today and Tuesday, we are spearheading efforts to get out the vote,” said Megan Price, the president of the Webster University College Democrats.

In the Central West End, volunteers for the Clinton campaign are working the phones. The volunteers usually work two hours shifts, but some have worked as long as six hours.

“They walk in, sign in their name, we walk them through how to do it. Even if the person they called doesn’t support or candidate, we ask them if their voting. No matter what party you support, it is important that they’re getting out and voting,” said Amber Genge, a volunteer for the Clinton campaign.

The polls are open from 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
