In the final hours leading up to tomorrow’s special election to fill Montana’s lone U.S. House seat, Democratic candidate Rob Quist is squeezing in a few final visits with voters, and making use of social media. 

Quist’s campaign Facebook and Twitter pages are flooded with testimonials from voters:

The videos, featuring local voters, family members and a cameo from movie star Michael Keaton, highlight Quist’s signature campaign issues, like protecting public lands, protecting access to healthcare and his deep Montana roots.

The online campaign mirrors his boots-on-the-ground lead up to tomorrow’s special election. This morning, Quist’s wife Bonnie and daughter Halladay talked women’s health issues with voters in Hamilton. Tonight, Quist is in Missoula to knock on doors with volunteers.

Quist is running against Republican Greg Gianforte and Libertarian Mark Wicks to fill Montana’s House seat, left vacant after Ryan Zinke resigned to become Secretary of the Interior.

Polls are open tomorrow from 7:00 a.m to 8:00 p.m. You can find more information about how, where and when to vote here.
