Candidates spent their last few hours before polls were to close Tuesday night making pitches to supporters and working with volunteers who were still distributing campaign material.
Some volunteers and candidates headed to the Long Island Rail Road station to catch both morning and evening commuters. Another drove a showmobile around Huntington, asking for votes. Others delivered flyers and letters by mail or by hand to voters’ porches.
Republicans continued to exhort their voters to turn out, in particular to counteract Democrats’ presumed numerical advantage with mail-in ballots.
“We can’t let them get away with this again!” an email delivered Tuesday afternoon read.
Both main parties had workers on hand at their headquarters in Huntington.
