Call centers in overdrive election eve
Local volunteers make final push before election day
SAN ANTONIO - In the home stretch, elections volunteers were making thousands of calls to voters with less than 12 hours to go until polls open Tuesday morning.
At the democratic call center on the 7100 block of San Pedro, volunteers were calling San Antonians and voters throughout the country in an effort to get President Obama re-elected.
"People have come out just full of energy, excited and committed to being here,” said call center volunteer, Cassandra Littlejohn. “We have volunteers that show up in the morning and don’t leave until the night, and then they come back the next day."
At a republican call center on 10000 block of Bandera, volunteers focused on pushing voters to re-elect Congressman Francisco “Quico” Canseco in the race against his democratic challenger, State Rep. Pete Gallego.
Volunteers at both call centers will be at it again on Election Day.
Meanwhile, at the Bexar County Elections Office workers spent the day answering last-minute questions such as ‘where is my polling location?’ and ‘what if I get there at the last minute?’
"You will be able to vote- if you're at the correct poll site at 7 pm,” said Jacque Callanen, Bexar Co. Elections Administrator. “Polls open at 7 am in the morning and close at 7 pm at night. The last person in line will be identified by election officials, and they will be able to vote."
