The UAW 578  Hall in Oshkosh was packed Saturday morning.
"I think it's very important that we know where our candidates stand," explained UAW 578 chairman, Fred Frederickson.  He helped to organize the forum where multiple Democratic candidates spoke to union members about the issues at hand and urged them to vote early.
"You can avoid all that crunch on election day.  Get it done early and I have a lot of people who come up to me and say it feels so good to get it done and know you've already voted," explained democratic candidate for senate, Russ Feingold.
While Democrats were pushing for votes all the way up to the top of the ticket, Republicans were working to drum up support too.  Volunteers across Wisconsin were making calls, handing out signs and knocking on doors this weekend.
On Thursday following the final presidential debate, Republicans said they're excited for their top nominee.
"His platform is very clear and contrasting to that of Hillary Clinton," said Brown County Republican Chairperson Marian Krumberger.
Both parties say they're pushing for last minute votes just three weeks ahead of election day.
