The countdown to election day Tuesday is on.
Saturday morning Mayor Tom Richards along with his fellow Democratic candidates wasted no time rallying to rock your vote.
"All of the discussion; none of it means anything if people don't vote. So we have to convince people to do is not only to support us, but we have to convince them to go out and vote and that's what this is about," said Richards.
Primary opponent and City Council President Lovely Warren hit the streets Saturday, greeting residents and encouraging them to vote.
At her Waring Road headquarters, volunteers gathered to strategize campaign efforts over the weekend.
"It is very important that we get the last minute votes and let people know that this race is winnable. I think that that is critical to go to the door and let the citizens of Rochester know that we need them to come out for them to speak," said Warren, (D) Mayoral Candidate.
Voter turnout can play a big part in how the mayoral race plays out.
"In terms of primaries, to be honest with you it's always the candidates that drive the turnout," said Democratic Board of Elections Commissioner Tom Ferrarese.
Ferrarese says on average primary elections have about a 35% voter turnout. Tuesday's primary in the city will also include city council and school board candidates.
"We really would love to see turnout come up a bit. It would really be nice," said Ferrarese.
Primary polls are open Tuesday at noon until 9pm.
