Barbara Smith is in the basement of the Fairfax County Republican Party headquarters with a dozen other volunteers. She's calling complete strangers and asking them to vote for her candidate, gubernatorial hopeful Bob McDonnell.
This is an important election for Republicans in Fairfax. With McDonnell leading in the polls, they see this as their best opportunity in years to make gains in a county that's been trending Democratic.
Democrats realize this too, and they're also working feverishly in the campaign's final days. Peter Clerkin is managing the campaign of a House of Delegates candidate in Fairfax, and he's struggling to find time to sleep.
"I'll get a couple hours here and there," he says. "It's a lot of work."
Polls open throughout Virginia at 6 a.m. tomorrow morning.
