Get out and vote, that is the message from the "Gotta Vote" bus tour as it made a stop in Athens Friday.
The "Gotta Vote" tour is scheduled to make stops in Cincinnati and Columbus to encourage voters to re-elect President Barack Obama.
Speakers, including former Ohio First Lady Frances Strickland, emphasized the extended early voting hours in the key battleground state.
Voters can cast their ballots early from now until Monday.
