UFW workers met at their downtown Bakersfield office before heading to different parts of Kern County in a final attempt to get people to vote.

UFW President Arturo Rodriguez says they have had a tremendous response so far but "We just want to urge everyone, either if you can vote early to go out and vote early. If not, then please make sure to go out and vote on election day. Get all of your family members to go out and vote. This is an extremely important election."

Across town in Northwest Bakersfield it was the same idea, where a group of Donald Trump supporters took to the streets to rally.

Organizers like Irma Hinojosa say the gathering was meant as a final push before Tuesday, hoping to bring people out adn remind them to vote.

"We are all over. We are trying to turn California red. Vote for Trump. Don't be afraid to vote for Trump. You know he wants to improve the economy and that's what we need. We need a successful businessman to turn this country around," said Hinojosa.
