PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — It all comes down to tomorrow. Rhode Island voters will decide whether to stick with the current governor or try someone else.

Thousands of Rhode Islanders have already cast their ballots for the midterms but candidates are still out making their final push.

Rhode Island is historically a blue state, but this year, Republican candidates say they have the support it takes to win, although democrats don’t agree with that.

With Election Day on Tuesday, incumbent Gov. Dan McKee and Republican challenger Ashley Kalus are focusing on getting voters to the polls.

After a busy weekend, both candidates were back out campaigning on Monday.

Kalus said she’s ready to be the change.

“I believe that voters are ready for change, someone that isn’t beholden to anyone,” she said. “Dan Mckee doesn’t have a record to run on—and that’s very apparent.”

Kalus was campaigning at Phantom Farms in Cumberland, which is down the street from McKee’s home, while he was also at a local business in Woonsocket.

McKee prides himself on the progress he said he’s made for the state over the last 20 months, from getting people vaccinated to helping the economy.

McKee narrowly secured the Democratic nomination for governor in the primary, while Kalus has been under scrutiny in the months leading up to Tuesday, facing claims questioning her ties to Rhode island. She lived in Illinois and Florida before buying a house in Newport.

In recent polls, including the 12 News Roger Williams University poll, McKee has a lead over Kalus.

Both candidates are feeling confident hours away from the election.

“Rhode Island needs a fighter someone who is going to protect Rhode Island and I’m confident that the voters will choose me but please go out and vote. I need every single vote,” Kalus said. “This is going to be a close race.”

“We do our best of making sure that we prepare and now we will leave it up to the voters but I have confidence that the voters will understand that we have a great deal of momentum and we want to hold on to it,” McKee said.

Monday is the final day for Rhode Islanders to cast their ballots early. As of Friday afternoon, 63,146 residents voted early and 28,873 mail-in ballots have been received, according to the secretary of state’s Voter Turnout Tracker

The turnout so far accounts for roughly 11.3% of eligible voters.

12 News political Analyst Joe Fleming said it will be interesting to see the impact early votes have on election results.

“Two years ago, that went very heavily for the Democrats in the state of Rhode Island. So, I’m not sure if we’ll see the same thing, but I do know on the mail ballots, almost 65% of the applications, were Democrats,” he said. “[The candidates] got to call their supporters, remind them about election night, urge them to go out and vote, encourage them to go on Monday and early vote.”

If you’re voting by mail, in Rhode Island mail ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day. In Massachusetts, mail ballots can be received until Nov. 12 as long as they’re postmarked by Election Day, Nov. 8.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
