A crowd gathers at a canvassing kick-off for Hillary Clinton Sunday morning in Oshkosh.
"Our strategy here in getting out the vote is exactly what our message is. It is total inclusion," explained actor, Bradley Whitford.
Actors Whitford, and Marlee Matlin of "The West Wing" told young voters to take advantage of Wisconsin's early voting.
 "We need everybody, and we need to make sure that everybody has a voice," said Whitford.
They're encouraging voters to rally behind state Democrats at the polls.
"We can't just sit back and feel assured that she's going to win. We have to fight tooth and nail, all the way up until the day of election day.," explained Matlin.
 It's not just Democrats pushing for votes, Republican Governor Scott Walker and Senator Ron Johnson also touring the state Sunday.
"But the bottom line is, we've shown that Wisconsin historically, like a lot of other mid-western states. There's a lot of ticket splitters. People don't always vote one straight party," said Gov. Walker.
At Republican Party Headquarters in Brown County Gov. Walker and Sen. Johnson were joined by 8th Congressional district candidate, Mike Gallagher.  They were reminding voters of what's at stake in  state races. 
"We want Republicans to vote for Ron Johnson. We want independents. And I hope there's discerning Democrats out there," said Gov. Walker.
According to Governor Walker, now is the time for voters here, in Wisconsin to get out of their comfort zone and engage neighbors in a conversation about the importance of this election.
"It is critically, critically important to get out and vote. And it's critically important for the grassroots to play a key role in it," said Gov. Walker.
Both parties are putting in extra effort as the countdown to November continues.
