Warren & Brown Volunteers Work Late On Election Eve

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Volunteers with the Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren campaigns were burning the midnight oil Monday night.

Each camp was trying to get some last minutes votes in the close race for Massachusetts’ senate seat by making calls and canvassing neighborhoods.  Volunteers stayed at the Brown office in East Longmeadow until 9 p.m. Monday.  Warren volunteers also stayed until 9 p.m. at the Northampton office.

“This is my second trip up here today. I was down earlier this morning and I feel there is a lot of excited energetic people,” said Chester Ogulewicz, Brown volunteer.

“The most important thing is to not be comfortable and what we are doing is calling people and reminding them how important it is to vote,” said Tami Goodstein, Warren volunteer.

The campaigns are offering people rides to the polls, helping them to figure out where and when to vote along with trying to sway undecided voters.

“I think I’d vote Warren. I’m not too sure. It’s getting tiring because it’s just name calling basically,” said Ivan Rodriguez, Springfield.

One voter who has already made up his mind is still nervous about the possible outcome.

“Just don’t know what’s going to happen. You know with the economy going down, going up and down. It’s a scary thought what’s going to happen the next four years,” said Shawn Cruzado, Chicopee.

The campaigns will do it all again one last time Tuesday until the last polls close at 8 p.m.
