BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - In the 4th District Congressional race, the spotlight is on the two major candidates, Democrat incumbent Gene Taylor and Republican challenger Steven Palazzo.

Behind the scenes, campaign staffers and volunteers are working hard to energize voters.

"All hands are on deck," said Taylor campaign worker Amy Hopkins. "It is vitally important on the ground, on the phone and on the internet. It's a collaborative effort."

According to Lisa Palazzo with the Steven Palazzo camp, "We are in overdrive is how we see it. You take no minute for granted. Nothing can be undone. No vote uncounted. We're on the phone 24-7."

Both campaigns' headquarters are busy in the final days leading up to November 2nd. The key is using every available resource to get the message out and encourage people to go to the polls.

Both campaigns agree, turn out is critical.

"We get out and go door to door to make sure we hit every voter we can. We want to get them out to the polls because that is what this election is going to turn on Tuesday," Lisa Palazzo said.

"We're working all angles with all different types of groups to ensure that people are at the polls," Amy Hopkins said.

Even in 2010, old-fashioned grassroots techniques like working the phones, putting sign yards in place and using volunteers are valuable components in a strategy to reach voters.

Remember, the General Election is Tuesday, November 2nd. The polls will be open from 7am until 7pm.
