Time may be running out, but that doesn't mean the candidates are slowing down. Both Congresswoman Louise Slaughter and County Executive Maggie Brooks held rallies on Saturday in hopes of bringing a last minute boost to their campaigns for the 25th Congressional District.

Executive Brooks held her rally in Irondequoit on Saturday morning. She told News10NBC that there's still a lot of work that can be done in the next three days.

"If there are people out there who are on the fence," says Brooks. "They're going to see how hard we're working. They're going to see that we have our volunteers out that are committed to our campaign, believe in our vision, believe in our values, believe in our message and I think it does make a difference."

We also stopped by the Democratic headquarters on University Avenue on Saturday to see how Representative Louise Slaughter's campaign is making use of the time left before election day. She says they're doing everything to make sure people get out and vote on Tuesday.

"We're going door-to-door," says Representative Slaughter. "We'll have hundreds of people working out of headquarters on Tuesday. If anyone needs a ride to the polls or needs any help in getting to the polls we want them to let us know."

The latest poll from Siena College gives Slaughter a ten-point lead over Brooks.
