ANCHORAGE (KTUU)- On Sunday, gubernatorial candidates Mike Dunleavy and Mark Begich made final stops on their campaign trails, speaking at rallies, churches and going door-to-door to get voters excited to head to the polls.

Democrat Mark Begich was in attendance at an event called "Souls at the Polls," hosted by Shiloh Baptist Church in Anchorage.

"I truly believe what we are talking about," Begich said. "The future of Alaska is where people want to go. They don't want to go back in time; they want a secure constitutionally protected PFD."

Begich said the next few days will be spent visiting with voters in Anchorage and Fairbanks, and encouraging everyone to get out and vote.

"It is going to be a razor-thin election, and every vote matters," he said.

Meanwhile, Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike Dunleavy was a main subject at a Republican rally on Sunday.

"I am going to do everything I can to make sure that trust is restored in our government," Dunleavy said.

Dunleavy added that, for him, the final two days until the end of election will be spent waving signs, thanking supporters and trying to make sure everyone gets out and votes.

"If we had different leadership, different polices and a different focus, I am convinced we can make this the greatest state in the nation," Dunleavy said.

General Election Day is November 6th, with polls open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
