The first polling stations have opened and the presidential candidates are holding their last pre-election rallies in an effort to persuade those still undecided to take advantage of their right to vote and help secure their place in the White House. “We are hours away from a once-in-a-lifetime chance,” exclaimed Donald Trump to his supporters in Michigan tonight last night (Monday). At the same time, Hillary Clinton implored her supporters in North Carolina, “Go out and vote for something greater than ourselves.”

“We don’t need Jay Z, we don't need Beyoncé, we don't need Lady Gaga," said Trump at his support rally held in Michigan, hinting at his rival’s collection of American artists supporting her throughout her campaign. “We’re going to have real change, not Obama change.”

Aside from encouraging his supporters to get out and vote, Trump repeated his campaign points and did not miss the opportunity to attack his opponent. “When you go out to the polls, there is one question you need to ask: Do you want America to be ruled by the corrupt political class or do you want America to be ruled again by the people?” he asked. “Tomorrow the American working class will strike back.”

Trump also appealed to the city of Flint, Michigan by promoting his anti-immigration stances while referencing the state’s declining manufacturing base. "Now the cars are made in Mexico, and you can't drink the damn water in Flint," he said. “Who’s going to build the wall?” Trump asked. “Mexico,” the crowd yelled in reply.

On the other hand, the Democratic candidate continues her efforts to get to the White House, this time as the first female president. “Tomorrow we face the test of our time,” Clinton said addressing a full house in North Carolina. She reminded her supporters as well as the undecided about prominent points from her platform.

Just like Trump, Clinton is fighting for every vote in this tight election. She urged her supporters to go vote offering them a more hopeful vision for the country’s future, “We choose to believe in a hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted America." Her words contrast with Trump’s “dark and divisive” vision that she urged voters to reject.

The energies of the crowds at both final rallies were considerably different. Clinton’s supporters jumped up and down together yelling “I believe that she will win” while Trump’s crowd yelled “Lock her up!” As this narrow race comes to a close, America will decide who is to take office.
