Less than a week away from Election Day, and Erie County Republicans are rallying.
Volunteers and candidates from the Republican Party of Erie County gathered Friday at Rainbow Gardens. They do it before each election.
It's a chance for the voters to be able to mingle with the candidates, and ask them about important issues before they head to the polls.
Erie County Republican Party Chair Verel Salmon said this election season, it's all about the local government. For that reason, he's hoping for a big turn out.
"This is an important election year. Your school taxes, your property taxes, the township government, the city government. It affects us more than anything else. So it's a time for Americans to stand up and get out there and vote."
Election Day is Tuesday, November 5.
