Weekend Events Aim to Get Out Vote Across Michigan

DETROIT (AP) -- The focus this weekend across Michigan is on getting out the vote for Tuesday's election.

The political parties will have volunteers out in force, knocking on doors and making phone calls to remind people to turn in their absentee ballots if they've got them or go to the polls on Election Day.

And the candidates will be keeping busy statewide Saturday.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Snyder holds a town hall meeting in Flint and rallies in Frankenmuth, Midland and Traverse City. He'll also stop at a tailgate ahead of the Bowling Green-Central Michigan football game.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Virg Bernero also has a full day, starting with a get-out-the-vote event in Ann Arbor. He'll be at a rally in Pontiac before stops Saturday afternoon in Detroit.
