Bill Clinton visits Gainesville
Gainesville, Fla. -- With the election approaching, a well known Democrat came to the Gainesville area to encourage the community to get out and vote.
Hundreds of people gathered at the Supervisor of Elections Office and Santa Fe Downtown Gainesville to welcome former President Bill Clinton.
Sheryl Eddie, President of the Democratic Women's Club of Alachua County, helped arrange the special surprise.
"We're women, we get it done," stated Eddie, "We're behind the scenes, we're on the phones, we're pounding the pavement. Our excitement is just a little bit different, and we toast every evening with a glass of wine and say, 'Yay, Hillary!'"
Polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, November 8th. Any voters waiting in line at 7 p.m. will have the opportunity to cast a ballot.
