Campaign volunteers continue to work hard as election nears

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The race for the White House is winding down, but there is no let up at the Clinton campaign office in Midtown Harrisburg.

Elisabeth Ketterman has been volunteering her time for the past several months. She says it has been time well spent, and it will be important to finish the job.

“It is all about getting voters a plan to vote,” Ketterman said. “We have to make sure they know where to go for the polls.”

Former Harrisburg Mayor Linda Thompson was working the phones before Election Day. She says she met Hillary Clinton in 2008 and made her a promise after she told Clinton that she was supporting Obama.

“She understood my position and was very understanding,” Thompson said. “I told her if she ran again, I would do my part.”

Trump volunteers have been working hard since the primary election at Twin Ponds in Mechanicsburg. Several including Bob Zambuto have been making calls and knocking on doors.

“We want them to know their vote counts,” Zambuto said. “We tell them that their vote matters and can be the difference in this election.”

Judith Krebs has volunteered her time during previous elections. She says that they will continue to work hard until the polls close.

“This is so important to the country going forward,” Krebs said. “We will not rest until the polls shut down in Cumberland County.”
