Last Minute Campaigning To Get Your Vote



Bookmark and Share

With only a few days left until Tuesday’s election those running for the District 12 State Senate seat in South Dakota are trying to make the most of what time is left.      

Running ads, creating websites, making phone calls and paying visits; it’s what Senator Mark Johnston and his competitor Kent Alberty have been doing for months.

Hoping they will be representing the people of District 12 in the South Dakota State Senate.

Now it is crunch time.

“This week, I've sent out over 16,000 pieces of mail to households in District 12,” said Senator Mark Johnston.

On Saturday Johnston made his way to any event for veterans and their families. Johnston said it’s important to thank those who have served our country, because after all he said they’re the reason everyone else has the right to vote.

“I will continue to do events like this. I will be out knocking out doors and making phone calls,” said Johnston.

With little time to spare, Johnston continues to make even more phone calls. In hopes to spread a message that he will continue to help South Dakota make 'common sense solutions.'

 "Just continuing to do the x's and o's of campaign management,” said Johnston.

And while Johnston visits with veterans and their families, while also making phone calls, Alberty takes to their district's streets.

"We walked early in the end of July and August and just going back into those areas and then going back into precincts we feel we just need to give one more push,” said challenger Kent Alberty.

Johnston’s challenger Alberty said while working on the South Dakota School Board, he was tired of seeing critical programs involving our children getting cut and seeing less funding.

"Decided the next step for me would be to be in the state senate and a voice in Pierre for kids,” said Alberty.

So he plans on revisiting over 1,000 of the already 4,500 doors he has paid a visit to. He hopes that  the visits will help him, so he can be that voice for children.

But he said those doors he doesn’t get to, won’t be forgotten.

“Sunday night and Monday night I'll be making phone calls to potential voters,” Alberty said.

It’s just all one last push to get voters to circle their name.

Both candidates said they are tired, but it won’t stop them from making one last stop or phone call to talk to a voter.
