CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- Candidates up for the 46th District State Senate seat are wrapping up their door-to-door campaigns.

Democratic incumbent Dave Koehler and Republican challenger Pat Sullivan agree on at least one thing.

They say meeting voters face-to-face on their own front porches is the best way to campaign.

"Door to door is probably the best activity that any candidate can do," said Senator Koehler. "You start early and then you go way back to what we did in the primary and we went all through the summer. And now we're going back to the folks that we know are supportive and just making sure that they voted."

"I think that it's something that should be continuous throughout the four years, because some people are shy to get up in front of a town hall meeting, some people are shy to get into that," said Sullivan. "That front porch there, they know how to talk."

Both candidates say their supporters have already voted or expressed that they intend to vote.

Election day is on November 6.
