CHICAGO (AP) — President Barack Obama is telling supporters to go to the polls themselves and get others there as well.
He's firing up thousands of people gathered in Chicago on Saturday night just a few blocks from his home in the city for a get-out-the-vote rally.
He asked the cheering crowd if they were fired up. He says people have to go to the polls so Democrats can finish what they started in 2008. He said at the rally people need to get others out to the polls too. And he said if everyone who fought for change to elect him comes out to the polls on Tuesday, then Democrats will win.
Chicago was Obama's third stop in a day of campaigning as he tries to fend off Republicans trying to win his former Senate seat and the Illinois governor's mansion.
