HELENA, Montana — On the eve of Election Day, candidates for federal office have found their way back to their Montana hometowns after extensive statewide tours to drive home their messages and get out the vote.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Steve Daines returned to Bozeman on Monday to make calls to urge people to vote and hold a rally for volunteers at his campaign headquarters. The seat he is seeking has been long sought by Republicans and could get the GOP closer to controlling the U.S. Senate.

Daines will vote at the Gallatin County Elections Office at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday and then return to campaign headquarters to make more calls and meet with volunteers. On Election Night, Daines will be at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bozeman starting at 7:30 p.m.

His opponent, Amanda Curtis, is still seeking as much face time with voters as she can after joining the race in mid-August. She is going door to door in Butte on Monday and Tuesday, encouraging people to vote. Curtis will hold an event in Butte at the Finlen Hotel and Motor Inn starting at 8 p.m. on Election Night.

The U.S. House race is open as Daines runs for Senate. Democrat John Lewis is continuing his ground game with door-knocking in Helena. Lewis will be at the Exploration Works science center in Helena starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday

Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester will make appearances at both Curtis' and Lewis' Election Night events.

Lewis' Republican opponent, Ryan Zinke, is around Flathead Lake on Monday and Tuesday, holding rallies in Polson and at Sykes Grocery in Kalispell. On Election Day, Zinke will wave signs at The Blue Moon in Columbia Falls before casting his ballot at 10 a.m. at the Whitefish Senior Citizen Center. He will be at Whitefish Lake Lodge starting at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
