Monday night Mississippians were mere hours from filing into polling booths across the state to cast their ballots.
As night fell local Democratic and Republican parties held rallies to Get Out the Vote.
Election eve was a final pitch to present the candidates and build momentum before Tuesday's vote.
In Jackson, the Hinds County Democratic Party held a Get Out the Vote rally at the CWA Local Union Hall.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Johnny Dupree participated in talk radio interviews before addressing the crowd.
Rally organizers said Democrats will try to reclaim the Governor's Mansion from Republicans after 16 years.
"We Democrats believe it's time for a change, and we believe our candidates from the top of the ticket to the bottom are running strong races. We're gonna turn out in record numbers and there are going to be some surprises tomorrow night," said Mississippi Democratic Party Executive Director Rickey Cole.
In Pearl, the Rankin County Republican Party their Get Out the Vote rally at the Pearl Community Center.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Phil Bryant was among candidates speaking to the party base.
Event sponsors said volunteers in attendance will place signs and campaign material for Republican candidates in Rankin county's 53 precincts.
"We're the leading Republican county in the state in terms of voting percentages and usually in the total vote. We have from Rankin County we've got three candidates on the ballot for tomorrow," said Rankin County Republican Executive Committee Chairman Gary Harkins.
Remember in order to pass, ballot initiatives must receive a majority of votes.
That is 50% plus one, as well as 40% of the total votes cast.
According to the Secretary of State's Office, Mississippi has more than 1, 843,000 registered voters.
