(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Tuesday, people around the nation will be casting their ballot for who they think should be the next President of the United States.
President Obama is spending the day in his hometown of Chicago.
Monday night he spent the final campaign hours trying to rally voters in battleground states. He made a stop in Ohio where he told supporters he needs four more years to complete the work his administration started.
"The reason why we are here is because we got more work to do. Our work is not yet done. As long as there is a single American who wants a job and can't find one, our work is not yet done. As long are there are families, anywhere in Ohio, anywhere in the country, working harder but fallen behind, we're not finished," said President Obama.
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney ended the day before election in the same place he started his presidential bid, New Hampshire.
The republican candidate hosted a rally in Manchester with the help of Detroit musician Kid Rock.
New Hampshire is the first state to begin voting. Polls for two locations opened at 12:01 a.m.
Romney will make two more campaign stops Tuesday, one in Ohio and the other in Pennsylvania.
The candidate has been trying to convince voters that the president didn't live up to his promises of change.
"Let me tell you why he fell so short of what he promised. He cared more about liberal agenda than about repairing economy. Did Obamacare create jobs? No! Did his war on coal or oil? No! Did Dodd Frank regs help banks make more loans? No! Raising taxes put people to work? No,” said Romney.
Many of the national polls show the two are statistically tied. The daily Gallup tracking poll Tuesday morning has Romney leading by one point among likely voters, 49-to-48-percent. Three percent of voters remained undecided.
But the Washington Post tracking poll is giving the edge to President Obama at 50-percent over Romney at 47-percent.
