SARASOTA COUNTY, FL (WWSB) – It’s down to the wire. Election Day for the Florida House district 72 seat is on Tuesday. As of Sunday, nearly 80% of eligible voters in the district still need to cast their ballots.

"People are still unaware of the election, matter of fact. People are unaware of what’s going on," stated Alison Foxall, Libertarian candidate.

All eyes are on Foxall, James Buchanan, and Margaret Good in the final hours before the special election.

"We are doing everything that we can get in the next 48 hours to get them to vote, to tell them our vision and our mission," explained Good, the Democratic candidate.

Volunteers with the three campaigns will go door-to-door canvassing, make phone calls, and meet constituents in person through Tuesday. Good, who said she wants to shake things up in Tallahassee, met with eligible voters face to face in a Sarasota neighborhood on Sunday. Volunteers for Foxall, a Booker High School grad, spent their Sunday afternoon catching the attention of drivers along Fruitville Road. Buchanan, the republican candidate and Cardinal Mooney grad, spent his Sunday evening at a "Make America Great Again" rally.

All three appeared together one last time for a panel at senior life campus Aviva on Sunday hitting topics like education, the environment, Social Security and Medicaid: a top concern among the crowd.

"Things are already happening in other states and I’m concerned what’s going to happen here," expressed one Aviva resident.

"I think we need to focus on the actual issue of why health care is increasing. Why is it to expensive?" asked Foxall.

"Our families, our veterans, our seniors deserve health care solutions," stated Buchanan.

"If we passed Medicaid expansion, almost a million people would have the healthcare that they need," explained Good.

Three different perspectives, but only one can represent District 72 area in Tallahassee…

"It’s gonna be a very close race and every vote is going to count," said Buchanan.
