Over the last 24 hours, it has been all about getting voters to the polls.
U.S. congressional District 25 candidates Democrat Joe Garcia and Republican David Rivera have been using their Twitter and Facebook accounts to get people to support their campaigns, even if they volunteer from home.
Rivera sent out this message through the campaign Twitter account about two hours ago: “It’s Election Day! Polls are open until 7pm. Please remember to go out and vote.”
His campaign posted this on their Facebook page this afternoon: “David Rivera for U.S. Congress Today is the big day! Polls are open until 7pm. Please remember to go out and vote for David Rivera for U.S. Congress!”
This afternoon Joe Garcia posted, “Election Day! Go Vote! If you’ve already voted, call 305.596.2010 and help us win!” on his Twitter account.
Just an hour ago on Garcia’s campaign posted, “We need your help. E-mail John right now at firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll set you up to volunteer from home,” on the Facebook page.
In the Aug. 24 primaries, Republican voters outnumbered Democrats in District 25. Miami-Dade County elections data shows that only 15 percent of registered voters made it to the polls for that vote. Almost 27,000 voted Republican, and 16,000 voted Democratic, while no party affiliation voters made up a little over 5,300 votes.
