Wendy Davis supporters prepare for primary election

Volunteers man phones, urge Democratic voters to cast ballots

On the eve of the 2014 Texas primary elections, volunteers for Democratic State Sen. Wendy Davis' campaign for governor spent the night making phone calls to make sure voters get out to the polls Tuesday.

A handful of young supporters gathered Monday night in Davis' Fort Worth campaign headquarters for a two-hour long get-out-the-vote phone bank.

With no other Democrats running against her, Davis has focused her efforts on building her base and registering voters that could help her out in November.

The Davis campaign has been fueled by grassroots donors and volunteers.

According to campaign officials, since Davis announced her run for the Governor's Office last October, more than 12,000 volunteers have made more than 360,000 phone calls and held more than 3,400 events across the state.

Social media has also been a big factor for the Davis campaign, they've racked up 421,000 Facebook likes and 167,000 Twitter followers that have been helping share her message.

Davis will join some of the volunteers Tuesday afternoon at her campaign headquarters to make a few last-minute phone calls before the polls close.
