Campaigns Make Final Push to Local Voters

Candidates, campaign workers take to the phones, polling places to influence voters.

Local campaign workers and candidates made a final push Tuesday to appeal to voters just two hours before Election Day draws to a close.

Rep. Kurt Heise (R-Plymouth) and his opponent, Tim Roraback (D-Plymouth) competed for votes as each candidate worked crowds Tuesday in the parking lot of the Plymouth Cultural Center, the polling place for all four of the City of Plymouth's voting precincts.

Candidates' family members also made a late push for votes Tuesday.

Jacki Price of Canton, appearing with her daughter, Maddie, displayed a large sign supporting her husband, Wayne County Commission candidate Shannon Price, outside the Plymouth Cultural Center.

At the Western Wayne County Democrats' office at Joy and Lilley Road, campaign workers supporting President Barack Obama worked a phone bank, calling area Democrats to remind them to vote. Adjacent to the Democrats' office, workers cavassed for various Democratic candidates, including Rep. Dian Slavens (D-Canton) out of an Election Day hub at Canton Coney Island.
