Surrogates for the presidential campaigns are urging Hoosiers to get to the polls even before Election Day.

A recent poll suggests Republican Donald Trump’s lead in Indiana could be down to just five points. Trump-Indiana campaign chair Rex Early says he doesn’t believe it.

“We’ve been all over the state and the energy and the people we talk to…boy they are strong Trump people,” Early says. 

Early says he’s been working to go into small towns and typically ignored areas of the state to drive out the vote for Trump.

 Actor Sean Astin spent Election Day stumping the state for Hillary Clinton and talking to Hoosiers about the importance of their vote.  In recent years, Indiana has consistently ranked low for voter turnout. Astin emphasizes every vote counts.

“Hopefully people realize that’s it’s not just who wins or loses but it’s the margins by which those people win or lose could make or break the campaign,” Astin says. “I mean this is really pivotal moment and Hoosiers ought to stand up and be counted.”

While Hillary Clinton campaigned in Northern Indiana Tuesday, her husband Bill Clinton spoke at an event in Indianapolis.

The former Democratic U.S. President says Hillary Clinton has the most realistic plan to fix the country’s economic problems.
