ROCHESTER, Minn.- Candidates are making their rounds before the primary election, encouraging people to get out and vote.
Today, US Senator Tina Smith and DFL candidate for Minnesota's 1st congressional district Dan Feehan met with volunteers, as they geared up to go door knocking.
Senator Smith tells KIMT that this election year has caused quite a bit of disagreement and wants to remind voters that they have power at the polls.

“On Tuesday you have the opportunity to choose and you need to, if you use that power that you have on Tuesday your voice is going to be so much stronger because of it,” said the senator.
Republican endorsed Jim Hagedorn, who’s campaigning for the first congressional district seat, was at Kasson's Festival in the Park 'Grand Parade’. He’s out looking to peek the interest of undecided voters, he tells KIMT he's out to let the people of Kasson know what he stands for.
“We’re pro-life, we're pro second amendment... we're for the President and his legislative agenda we're excited about it,” said Hagedorn.
Many polls in Minnesota open at 7 a.m on Tuesday.
